Precision Cut Limited is founded by a team of experts in precision engineering and biomedical engineering from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. We are dedicated to developing solutions of precision tissue sectioning and cutting via various technologies. The proposed product is the ultrafast oscillating blade microtome for precision tissue sectioning. 

The microtomy is a standard technique for almost all pathology and microscopy laboratories, which belongs to the market of biological specimen preparation. The development of new imaging and tissue processing techniques necessitates a new class of microtome to slice ultrasoft tissues, fresh tissues and fixed whole organs into thin sections for microscopic imaging. The new microtome developed by Precision Cut enables the precise sectioning of various ultrasoft tissues that are hard to process before. 

The new microtome successfully addresses the existing challenges for the commercial products that the highest blade oscillating frequency (up to 350 Hz) and minimal error motion (< 1 µm) ensure excellent cutting capability. The new microtome enables many emerging imaging and biological applications, such as high-throughput super-resolution imaging and tumor slice drug screening, and potentially generates great commercial value in the fields of pathology and biophotonics.
