“Even as technical advances are revolutionizing electron microscopy on so many different levels, it is certain that ultramicrotomy and cryo-ultramicotomy will remain vital tools for biological electron microscopists in the foreseeable future. In the past, these methods required highly skilled and practiced technicians to obtain satisfactory results, but thanks to continual refinements in ultramicrotome design, the ability to obtain high quality ultrathin epoxy and ultrathin cryosections has become much easier. “The RMC PowerTome PC is a sophisticated state-of-the-art ultramicrotome capable of delivering superb results, and the RMC CR-X Cryosectioning System is unrivaled in its ability to allow the production of semi and ultrathin cryosections of the highest quality with relative ease. My only wish was that I had these tools much earlier in my career as this would have saved much stress and strain.”
