Diatome - Diamond Knives

DiATOME diamond knives are compatible with all ultramicrotomes.
The surfaces of the knives are hydrophilic.  This property allows an easy wetting of the cutting edge, even with a very low water level.  The diamond is high vacuum brazed onto a metal shank which is securely screwed into the boat.  The cementing material seals boat and knife.  It is hydrophilic and aids the easy wetting of the cutting edge.
