Compresstome® VF-800-0Z

The only large-size vibratome on the market. It can section entire non-human primate brains as well as other organs.



The VF-800-0Z is designed for sectioning the tissue of larger animals. It is also the only vibratome that can section large organs without freezing. With a diameter of up to 100mm, it allows the brain sectioning of cats, dogs, pigs, and monkeys. Many neuroanatomy and neuropathology experiments require sectioning entire brains from these animals. The VF-800-0Z is capable of sectioning slices for these large primates down to 40 microns.  


  • Produces even, consistent slices (no more thick-and-thin sections)
  • Slices over 5x faster than other market vibrating microtomes
  • Patented compression technology and agarose embedding process tissue and eliminates chattermarks
  • Auto Zero-Z® technology reduces Z-axis deflection to <4 μm


The Compresstome® VF-800-0Z vibrating microtome creates smooth, thin & consistent sections for protein staining, without need of freezing. It is recommended for:

  • Immunohistochemistry
  • In-situ hybridization
