Minux® S700 Semi-Automatic Rotary Microtome

Built upon market-leading microtome machine design, S700 Rotary Microtome enables you to cut sections precisely, safely and super easy to operate. It displays extraordinary ergonomic characteristics for comfortable operation. It is a semi-automatic model, more in line with your slicing habits.

When working with delicate specimens (example being brain samples) the rotary microtome system will provide reproducible, thin, serial sections of maximum quality time and again. Unique side specimen knob and visual pointer design make specimen advance and retraction more precise. Handwheel double lock system, knife ejector, and guard enhance safety.

The 2-in-1 blade holder satisfies the use of high and low-profile blades.

Application field: Histopathology/Anatomical Pathology


“We are generally happy with it. S700 is a stable, reliable and high-end quality semi-automatic microtome. This instrument displays extraordinary ergonomic characteristics for comfortable operation while maintaining reproducible precision during sectioning. It run smoothly and your after-sales service is excellent, I would highly recommend it. Thanks

  • Semi-Auto VS Fully-Auto
  • Model information
  • Precise sampling: Our rotary microtome machine is well-equipped with Cross roller bearings and Spindle, combined with a five-phase high-resolution Stepper motor and a Link block made of aviation aluminum, form a high-precision sampling system to ensure slice quality.
  • Accurate positioning: With patented pointer identification technology, our rotary microtome machine enables visual adjustment of the sample angle for pinpoint accuracy in positioning; the knife holder has a small lateral displacement which further enhances accuracy. The base has a scale, which is convenient for the knife holder to locate and improve the quality of slices.
  •  Operator safety: The handwheel dual locking system comes with a lock prompt sound, and is equipped with a knife ejector and a knife guard, so that the user can safely replace the sample and blade.
  • Information tracking: Our rotary microtome machine is built with a 5-inch touch screen and history recording system that make it easy to trace back the past information and quickly solve the problems.
  • Convenient operation: German military-grade side injection knob of the rotary microtome machine conforms to ergonomic design, and the operation is more comfortable and coordinated.
  • Convenient maintenance: special material waste tank, non-wax, easy to clean

RWD S700, S700A, S710 and S712 microtomes have been registered and listed by the US FDA (available on the FDA official website) and have been approved for clinical use.
