New Cryostat Offers High-Quality, Efficient Frozen Sectioning
RUNCORN, U.K. --(Business Wire)--
A new manual cryostat offers scientists improved functionality and
ergonomics, ensuring efficient high quality frozen sectioning.
Sectioning temperature is critical in generating a good quality fresh
frozen tissue section. The Thermo Scientific Cryostar NX50 is an
innovative cryostat incorporating knife cooling and adjustable specimen
head temperature for rapid adjustment to meet the temperature
requirements for each specimen.
"Pathologists rely on quick turnaround time and excellent sectioning
quality from their cryostat," said Richard Vernon, Commercial Product
Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Our Cryostar NX50 gives them the
functionality and control to achieve diagnosis rapidly"
Designed with an LCD touch screen interface operation is streamlined for
the user. By utilizing icon driven software parameters can be changed
simply and quickly to meet the demands of different specimen types.
In addition, the Cryostar NX50 offers:
Optional motorized height adjustment, alowing the operator to
customize the position of the cryochamber for either seated or
Optional Cold D disinfection system for rapid, on demand
decontamination of the cryochamber, protecting the operator from
exposure to biological pathogens with minimal downtime.
Optional, variable-pressure vacutome, which delivers wrinkle-free
sections by gently stretching the specimen during cutting.
