Improved Slide Quality Using the AquaroASM Automated Section Mounting System

The AquaroASM automated section mounting system interfaces with motorized microtomes and utilizes a gentle water stream to transfer paraffin-embedded sections from the microtome blade to slides. Sections are exposed to warm water for relaxing at a temperature and for an amount of time defined by the user. Users can also program the number of sections per slide, the location of section placement on the slide, and whether sections are mounted serially or with different levels on the same slide.
