The AquaroASM is actually much smaller than a microtome! The footprint of the AquaroASM is 10” wide x 10” deep, and it is 15” in height.
Currently, the AquaroASM has been demonstrated to work with motorized Leica and Microm microtomes.
The AquaroASM is optimized to mount sections from “standard” size blocks that are approximately 24mm x 24mm.
You can choose to have one or two sections placed on each slide. Sections can be placed on slides serially, or at levels with sections discarded in between. Additionally, you can place sections from different levels on one slide. If putting one section on each slide, you can have it placed on the top, middle, or bottom of the slide.
The AquaroASM can run programs utilizing 1 to 20 slides per run. The number of slides run can be programmed by the user using the control panel or the number of slides run can be managed by how many slides are placed into the slide rack prior to a run.
