Histotechnology - for routine and research applications

In its medical focus field Histotechnolgy pfm medical develops, manufactures and distributes microtomes and laboratory equipment for use in histology and pathology. Thanks to our special business model we cover the entire value chain from the idea for a product and its development all the way to production and distribution. This helps us ensure the implementation of our high quality standards in every area.

Developed with users for users

Our products are the result of continuous further development – always in close collaboration with users. They are equipped with numerous functions to ensure safe handling and convince our customers all over the world for more than two decades with state-of-the-art technology, simple operation as well as the highest examination and analysis standard.


Our recognised product and service training offers are an important part of quality assurance; they allow the user to minimise the risks and to keep errors to the absolute minimum. The users in the laboratory benefit from extensive product training by our in-house distribution team. We also apply the same high-quality standard for our international network of distributors. Even our distributors complete intensive product and service training, which puts them into the position to guide their customers to safe and efficient operation of the devices. 

Technical service 

Device maintenance as well as any repairs are done directly by us as the manufacturer, by our distribution partners or by selected local service partners.  This ensures fast and reliable local assistance. 

Good advice

Our experts are ready to offer advice and help for individual and specific questions. The profitability of the laboratories is what we are focused on. Our solutions are designed to optimise work quality and processes. This naturally includes the reliable delivery and implementation process.
