A NEW SAFE TO USE PRODUCT - NOT A BAND SAW
After 30 successful years in producing Materials Science Laboratory equipment Materials Science (NW) Ltd, have turned their attention to the Pharmacological, Medical, Dental, Pathological and Forensic market. The result is the Precision Laboratory Bone Saw which cuts accurately through a wide variety of teeth, calcified and de-calcified bones and soft tissues but ensures that the integrity of both hard and soft tissues are preserved intact. The bone saw is particularly useful in Pathology and Histology work.
User safety is a key design feature. Because the diamond wheel grinds instead of cuts, there is no immediate risk of injury if the wheel is touched unintentionally.
In producing a saw capable of meeting the demanding specification of this market Materials Science (NW) Ltd has been able to contain costs by an innovation that delivers water directly into the cutting zone without using a costly pumping system. The sample to be slit is placed on one of the several stages supplied with the saw and then fed into the wheel by hand control or semi-automatic gravity feed in the case of small and medium-sized samples.
A TESTED PRODUCT
Comprehensive field trials have been carried out in major pharmacology research laboratories and a hospital pathology laboratory. The resulting feedback was incorporated into the final design. Comments made by the laboratories include:
"Bone fragmentation and damage to soft tissues was minimal."
"...it does not ‘wrench’ out much of the desired bone marrow muscle of the underlying tissues as do other saws."
"cartilage surfaces were fine as expected at the uppermost levels, bone fragmentation was minimal, marrow cell loss was reduced. At lower levels, >100 microns, marrow cells were left mostly intact and cruciate ligament was better preserved."
Available in 110v A.C. or 220v A.C versions.
A VALUE FOR MONEY PRODUCT
Given this exceptional performance, the low cost of the equipment makes it an attractive proposition for any pharmacological, medical, dental, pathology, histology or forensic laboratory.
In summary, the advantages and features of this new saw are:
