- A microtome is a tool used to cut extremely thin slices of material, known as sections.
- These Important in science, microtomes are used in microscopy,
- Used for the preparation of samples for observation under transmitted light or electron Microtomes use steel, glass, or diamond blades
- Depends upon the specimen being sliced and the desired thickness of the sections being cut.
- Steel blades are used to prepare sections of animal or plant tissues for light microscopy history.
