Our current Ultramicrotome has developed several severe faults relating to the electronics and because of its age (25+ years) is not reparable. This instrument is located in our Auckland Microscopy Laboratory and is the only one of its type within the institute. It is heavily used by staff and students and thus needs to be easy to use and reliable. It is a key requirement for much of the microscopy research being carried out providing thin and semi-thin sections for light microscopy, and in particular immunofluorescence imaging, and ultrathin sections for transmission electron microscopy.
