Compresstome® VF-300

The basic model, automatic vibrating slicer, to produce healthy slices for electrophysiology and immunohistochemistry



The VF-300 is is designed as a basic model by our engineers. This tissue slicer has a movable motor box for rapid loading of samples for cutting, along with a separate control box. Please note that this vibratome model does not include the patented Auto Zero-Z technology.


  • Produces healthy acute slices 5x faster than other market vibrating microtomes
  • Uses agarose embedding process
  • Fully automated slicing
  • Slice thickness control to 1µm precision
  • Ability for single or continuous cutting modes
  • Manual adjustment of blade holder
  • Sliding control box allows for fast loading of samples for cutting
  • Light footprint for easy portability


The Compresstome® VF-300 vibrating microtome is recommended for:

  • Electrophysiology
  • Immunohistochemistry
  • Organotypic cultures
  • Precision-cut live slices
