precision cutting from 10-200µm
SliceMaster Micro Sample Preparation Tools are compact instruments that can easily cut thin sections from 10 to 200µm. These thinly sliced specimens may be viewed with a microscope. These instruments are simple to set-up for thin section preparation for specimens such as polypropylene bottles and multi-layer paper cartons. This product was originally designed for cutting specimens for FTIR analysis but is useful for many other applications.
The SliceMaster is available in three blade angles: vertical, angled and multi-angled. The TS-10 Pellet Slicer is for irregular sized pellets, seeds, caplets and tablets. All of the SliceMaster tools use double-edge or single edge razor blades.
The HS-1 Vertical Slicer can vertically cut samples such as polypropylene bottles into 100 to 500µm sections, multi-layer paper cartons from 100 to 600µm sections, and PET samples from 150 to 400µm sections. Items such as polyester or other polymers can be sliced with a variable thickness of 100µm or greater.

|10µm||Polyvinyl Chloride and Polyvinylidene Chloride Wrappers, Polyethylene Bags, Aluminum Foil|
|*Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyester, Polyimide, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Polyvinyl Acetate, etc.|
The HW-1 Multi-Angle Slicer can cut samples at any angle from 45° to 90°. Various types of samples can be prepared with thin section thickness of 10 to 500µm, with the ability to select the desired sample thickness.
The TS-10 Pellet Slicer cuts at angles of 70° to 90° angles. The TS-10 Pellet Slicer used for cutting irregular sized pellets, seeds, caplets and tablets.
