"Our lab loves the Rankin Basics manual microtome: the unit looks very nice and is easy to clean, the fly wheel turns smoothly and easily, and we absolutely love the built-in chuck level! Excellent basic microtome – no need to spend all that money on name brands!"
Meghan D., Lab Manager
The Rankin Basics Semi-Automated Rotary Microtome is a simple to use, ergonomic rotary microtome with built-in electronics to make microtomy more efficient and consistent. Users that are used to the big-name OEM microtomes will have a very easy time transitioning to the Rankin Basics microtome, as the features and ergonomics feel extremely similar to the big-name OEM microtomes.
The Rankin Basics Manual Rotary Microtome was designed with reliability in mind. The most robust parts have been selected in order to provide decades of reliability. After 10 years of research and development, with 4 years of internal testing on over 1,000 control slides per day, we are thrilled to offer what we believe is the most reliable microtome we've ever seen. This is why we are providing a warranty that is double the industry-standard, of 2-years.
