DESCRIPTION

In the everyday routine inside a laboratory, microscopic substances and samples are very common. Most of the time it is necessary to cut some of the samples in extremely thin slices of material, known as sections. In order to prepare a sample and to make those types of cuts, you must have a microtome, a very essential device in the microscopy field. Microtome use allows the preparation of samples for observation under transmitted light or electron radiation. 

Microtomy is a method for the preparation of thin sections for materials such as bones, minerals and teeth, and an alternative to electro polishing and ion milling. Microtome sections can be made thin enough to section a human hair across its breadth. Cryostat microtome is built for cutting frozen samples. The reduced temperature allows the hardness of the sample to be increased.

 

Cryostat microtome

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. This model also has a counting function that displays the number of sections and the total thickness. The cryogenic refrigeration system utilizes a forced cooling structure. A German compressor cools the refrigeration chamber, freezing shelf, blade holder and specimen holder independently. It runs with an 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. In addition, it has an 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.

This cryostat Microtome has two defrost modes: time defrosting and manual defrosting. It also has a semiconductor cooling function can be turned on and off. The LCD screen displays the number of section pieces, total thickness, section thickness, specimen retraction value, temperature setting, date, time, temperature and on/off timer. The Auto sleep function brings humanity to the product: the cryo-chamber temperature automatically stays in a range of -1 to -9°C under the sleep mode, and returns to the sectioning temperature within 15 minutes after canceling the sleep mode. Moreover, it has a large-size quick-freezing shelf allows the preparation of 17 specimen at the same time and Two holes for semiconductor refrigeration. This model’s working voltage is AC220V±10%50Hz (standard model); AC110V±10%60Hz. The full power is 600W. Finally, the dimensions are 650×800×1160mm (W×D×H) and net weight is 115kg.

Features:

  •  This model has an ergonomic design and is manufactured using numerically-controlled machine tools.
  •  A specimen retraction function protects the specimen from blade damage.
  •  A trim button allows for easy switching between trim and sectioning mode.
  •  Includes a counting function for 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 double compressor to enhance cooling performance and increase cooling speed.
  •  Imported R404A non-CFC refrigerants that are environment-friendly.
  •  Achieves the desirable sectioning 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 after each use; It also has low-voltage DC shadowless lamp.
  •  Semiconductor cooling function can be turned on and off.
  •  Hearable and removable glass door.
  •  Two defrosting 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.
  •  User-friendly intelligent operational interface is easy to learn and operate.
  •  LCD screen displays the number of sections and the total thickness, section thickness, specimen retraction value, temperature setting, date, time, temperature and on/off timer are all included on the main display.
  •  Auto sleep function results in longer compressor life: the cryo-chamber temperature automatically stays in a range of -1 to -9°C under the sleep mode, and returns to the sectioning temperature within 15 minutes after canceling the sleep mode.
  •  Keyboard locking function to avoid accident misoperation.
  •  A mechanical hand-wheel lock ensure safe chamber access, 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 for the preparation of 17 specimens 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.
  •  Self-detection function for the temperature senor, can help to warn the failure on temperature senor.
