As stability is critical during sectioning to prevent undulations, also known as washboarding in the paraffin sections, vibration should be reduced to the minimum during microtomy. As a result, histology equipment manufacturers usually design heavy microtomes weighing 40 to 60 pounds. To keep a microtome cutting optimally for many years, daily cleaning from paraffin debris and yearly preventive maintenance are highly recommended.
