Almost all best known and traditional manufacturers of microtomes moved their pdoductions to countries where they produce at dumping price conditions on a questionable quality level.
A microtome is not a one-way article, but a high precise machine with ultra fine mechanics. Moreover these devices can decide in the medical area of pathology about a following cancer therapy for a patient.
Less than a 100% of quality is in our eyes not acceptable. Therefor we produce only in Germany and use parts from here or from other high-tech areas.
A microtome should last a lifetime and should always do a perfect service.
Why plastic when metal is all you need to reach this aim!
High-End "Made In Germany!"
