Diatome Diamond Knives

Diatome Diamond Knives

 

Diatome Ultra Diamond Knives

Highest  quality diamonds and optimal crystal orientation guarantee perfect ultrathin sections and a durable edge. Section pick up is facilitated  as the boat is horizontal allowing the water to completely fill the boat all the way round.

A  hydrophilic surface makes it easy to wet the cutting edge, even with a low water level.

The optimal thickness range for cutting with these knives is between  30-150 nm. Whether you requirements are biological or materials related, in EM or LM the DIATOME knives will suit your needs.

 

Ultra Diamond Knife 45°

Recognized as the  appropriate knife angle for routine sectioning of both biological and material research specimens. It is a good compromise between section quality and durability. The 45° Diamond knife is recommended for the sectioning of extremely hard and brittle materials.

This knife is available is sizes ranging from 1.5mm to 4.0mm.

Ultra Diamond Knife 35°

The use of  35° knives leads to reduced compression in soft samples and to less breaking in hard and brittle samples. These knives have proved their capability as a routine knife for many applications.

 

Resharpening Service for DIATOME Knives

Resharpened DIATOME knives undergo the same stringent optical checking and sectioning tests as a new knives. A diamond knife resharpened by DIATOME is the same high quality as a new one.

Your resharpened DIATOME knife will have the same length, the identical cutting edge and carry the same exact guarantee of quality as the day it first left the factory. Any DIATOME knife can be resharpened an unlimited number of times
