|Encore™ makes it easy.|
|Encore blades offer other advantages that can help simplify the cutting process.|
|Our proprietary coating process results in blades that require no wiping prior to use and need minimal roughing in.|
|Encore blades are manufactured to optimum thickness (.010”) with precise edge geometry. In fact, when switching from an Accu-Edge blade, there’s no need for angle adjustment.|
|Less Blade Changing|
|Our research indicates that Encore blades can produce quality, consistent cuts for as many as 45-50% more turns than the Accu-Edge® blade. Switch to Encore from Accu-Edge without an angle adjustment in your microtome. Less blade changing improves productivity and saves you time and money in the long run.|
|Edge geometry comparison||The Difference. Our Advantage|
|Years of research and testing have revealed that the New Encore Microtome blade has a 32% sharper blade edge and has 48% longer blade life over Accu-Edge®. Both blades have identical tip angles (cutting edge). However, Encore’s first and second grind angles are the difference–they are less steep providing a sturdier base of support for the cutting edge, which creates improved durability.
We’ve even improved Encore’s coating. So the advantages become clear – longer blade life equals fewer blade changes. Fewer blade changes equal a more productive lab.
