The Leica RM2125 rotary microtome has been designed for effortless manual sectioning via a counter-balanced, exceptionally smooth-running handwheel.
Storage space on top of the instrument housing provides room for sectioning tools and accessories.

The instrument features a low-maintenance micrometer feed system with backlash- and maintenance-free vertical cross-roller guides and horizontal specimen feed via precision cylinder guide system.

Handwheel lockable in any position via brake lever attached to base plate and, in addition, lockable in upper position via handwheel grip.

Distortion-resistant base plate ensures optimum overall stability.

Ergonomically designed handwheel grip.

Section thickness selectable between 0.5 and 60 µm.

The Leica RM2125 is the instrument of choice for customers preferring to work in the so-called 'Ergomode' (Rocking mode), since the Leica RM2125 does not feature a specimen retraction system.

Semi-enclosed housing (slot cover) largely prevents dust from entering the instrument.

Equipped with removable hand rests. In this model, the coarse feed wheel is operated in clockwise direction - the type of coarse feed most widely used in Europe.
