DiATOME cryo diamond knives
The range of DiATOME cryo diamond knives are available in 1.5mm to 4.0mm edge lengths and three knife angles with or without a boat. They provide proven performance for challenging applications, such as frozen hydrated sections (CEMOVIS) with minimal compression as well as sectioning by the Tokuyasu method for immunolabelling and sectioning soft material specimens. For light microscopy applications please see the histo range of cryo knives.
For trimming at low temperature we recommend a choice of DiATOME trim knives.
cryo knives can be resharpened multiple times using the DiATOME resharpening service.
cryo Immuno knives for Tokuyasu method
cryo 25 knife for CEMOVIS method
DiATOME cryo 25° diamond knife with 3.0mm edge for ultra thin sectioning at low temperature for CEMOVIS (cryo electron microscopy of vitrified sections). This knife has a low 25° knife angle for reduced compression sections. Labtech-EM also provides a resharpening service for the cryo 25° diamond knife.
