DiATOME® ultra Diamond Knives

Available for sale in U.S.A. only


Features:

  • Highest quality diamonds and optimal crystal orientation guarantee perfect ultrathin sections and a durable cutting edge
  • Section pick-up is facilitated as the boat is horizontal allowing the water to completely fill the boat all the way round
  • A hydrophilic surface makes it easy to wet the cutting edge, even with low water level

ultra 35 Wet

ultra 35° Wet

The ultra 35° knife is the standard knife for the majority of applications in both biological and materials research.  The 35° blade angle is ideal for sectioning biological specimens ranging from organ tissues to un-decalcified bone and dental material. In the field of Materials Science, the ultra 35° excels at sectioning relatively soft metals and polymers, as well as nano-particle filled polymers, brittle metals such as catalysts, crystals and semiconductors. Section thicknesses range from 30 to 200nm. Standard boat. Available in blade widths from 1.5 to 4.0mm.

ultra 45

ultra 45°

Like the ultra 35°, this is a general use knife with good sectioning and durability characteristics. The 45° blade angle knife replaces the old 55° and allows for better sectioning of ceramics and other hard, brittle materials. Section thicknesses range from 30nm to 200nm. Standard boat. Available in blade widths from 1.5 to 4.0mm

ultra semi

ultra semi

Designed with 35° blade angle for alternating between ultra-thin and semi-thin sectioning. Section thicknesses range from 50 to 500nm. Standard boat. 3mm blade width.

ultra maxi

ultra Maxi

3.0mm ultra 35° diamond knife with wider boat. Section thicknesses range from 30 to 200nm. Wide boat available in 3.0mm blade width only.

ultra jumbo

ultra Jumbo

Recommended for serial sections for 3D reconstruction and STEM. Section thicknesses range from 50 to 200nm. Jumbo boat, 2.0 and 3.0mm blade widths. Available with 35° and 45° blade angles.

ultra 35 dry

ultra 35° Dry

The ultra 35° knife (in the triangular holder) with a thickness range of 30-200nm is used for dry sectioning of epoxy or acrylic resin embedded biological samples, which need to be investigated by element analysis (Ref. Edelmann) and SIMS (Ref. Guerquin-Kern).

ultra ats

ultra ats 35°

The ultra ats diamond knife is designed for ease of placing sections onto wafers for SEM examination. Large uniquely sized boat. 3.0mm blade width only.
