iFM-17 is designed to accurate and quick diagnosis in surgery. It has a table clamping device. The Specimen rises accurately and automatically by a handle. The CO2 freezing attachment is provided with a hard rubber non-conducting plate between the corrugated surface to which the object is frozen and rest of the apparatus, which prevents the
conduction of heat from the other parts of the apparatus to the specimen: thus saving and CO2.
The automatic Feed mechanism can be thrown out of action by turning the index finger to the extreme left or it may be set to cut sections of any desired thickness. Each division of the graduated scale marks 5µm, the microtome range being 5-40µm. The sturdy knife holder can be tilted to a convenient angle of the knife suitable to the object.
