This Cryostat Microtome combines advanced and patented technology which is a wise choice for histopathology research.
It is ready when you are. Chamber temperature can drop within 60 minutes of turning the unit on. The stand-by mode can be controlled between -10°C and -40°C automatically. The system returns to working temperature within 15 minutes of initiation from stand-by mode.

This model has an ergonomic design and is manufactured using numerically-controlled machine tools;
A specimen retraction function protects specimen from blade damage;
A trim button results in easy switching between trimming and sectioning modes;
A counting function displays the number of sections and the total thickness;
The cryogenic refrigeration system utilizes a forced cooling structure. The refrigeration chamber, freezing shelf, blade holder and specimen holder are cooled independently by a German compressor.
Imported R404A environmentally friendly non-CFC refrigerants are used;
Achieves the desirable slicing temperature within 20 minutes after turning on the unit when using the fast cooling mode;
UV option enables surface disinfection of harmful bacteria, viruses, and spores by using 35 min each use; It also has low-voltage DC shadowless lamp;
Activation of the Peltier element is controllable (on/off);
Heatable and removable glass door;
Two defrost modes: time defrosting and manual defrosting;
Microtome is outside of the refrigeration chamber to avoid the effect of heat-expansion and cold-contraction, thus minimizing the need for maintenance;
An uncluttered intelligent control panel is easy-to-learn and easy-to-use;
LCD screen displays the number of section pieces, total thickness, section thickness, specimen retraction value, temperature setting, date, time, temperature and on/off timer;
Auto sleep function brings humanity to the product: the cryo-chamber temperature automatically stays in a range of -4 to -9℃under the sleep mode, and returns to the sectioning temperature within 15 minutes after canceling the sleep mode;
Keys can be locked to avoid misoperation; 16 position for locking;
The red bar on the blade holder covers the whole length of blade to protect the user and the push bar enables easy changing of the blade;
A large-size quick-freezing shelf allows the preparation of 17 specimen at the same time; Two holes for semiconductor refrigeration;
It has cleaning device, easy help customer to clean the unit;
Specimen Orientation: XY – 8°; Z– 360° adjustable at any orientations to ensure precise placement;
A mechanical hand-wheel lock ensures safe chamber access.
