Minux® S700A Rotary Microtome

S700A is a fully automated microtome with automatic, semi-automatic, and manual options available to meet the different needs of microtomists. Featured four mechanized cutting modes to produce high-quality sections across an extensive range of specimen types.
It displays extraordinary ergonomic characteristics for comfortable operation while maintaining reproducible precision.
The unique side specimen knob and visual pointer design make specimen advance and retraction more precise.
Handwheel double lock system and knife ejector and guard enhance safety.
Special memory system to remember the optimal specimen position for fast and effortless sectioning.

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


“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

Technical Specifications

  • Features&Benefits
  • Technical Parameters
  • Semi-Auto VS Fully-Auto
  • Model information
  • Applications
  • Cross roller bearings and Spindle imported from Germany, 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. Original imported Drive motor  and encoder ensure stable and smooth automatic slicing
  • Accurate positioning: Patented technology pointer identification, the sample angle can be adjusted visually, and the positioning is more accurate; the knife holder has a small lateral displacement and high 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. After the automatic slicing is completed, the electronic brake keeps the handwheel in a stable state to ensure safe operation
  • Intelligentt slicing: Four automatic slicing modes to meet the needs of different slicing scenes. Cutting window function to ensure the quality of slices while improving the efficiency of automatic slices
  • Information tracking: 5-inch touch screen, history recording system, easy to trace back information and quickly solve problems
  • Convenient operation: The imported military-grade side sample injection knob conforms to the ergonomic design, and the operation is more comfortable and coordinated.
  • Convenient maintenance: special material waste tank, non-wax, easy to clean

※Automated, motorized injection for automatic or manual sectioning.

※Sample positioning function,patented visual pointer identification,keep samples at the same angle and achieve accurate sample positioning.

※The 5-inch touch screen is easy to operate. Stylish and simple operation interface,easy to learn and understand.

※The side sampling knob is ergonomically designed to make operation more comfortable. The half-knife repair function simplifies the operation process, save time and effort.

Handwheel dual lock system, lock the handwheel at any position. Knife guarding and retracting device, emergency stop button, multiply enhance the protection of the operator.

Sample position memory function, one-click reset, improve sectioning efficiency.

The historical record system can query the equipment usage and facilitate information tracking.

Audible and visual alarm when the horizontal sampling is 1mm remaining.

Cut window function. The slice window can be customized on the vertical stroke, so that different slice speeds can be used for the stroke outside the window and the slice inside the window to better control the automatic slice quality.
