AST560 Semi-automatic Cryostat Microtome


It is designed under overall engineering and ergonomic concept. All the components are processed by computer numerical controlled machine.

Retraction function prevents specimen damage from blade.

Total thickness calculation.

The low temperature refrigeration system with environment friendly refrigerant R404.

Adopt UV sterilize for 30 minutes every time.

Peltier specimen clamp refrigeration can be turn On or Off manually.

Two defrosting methods: manual and automatic.

The high prevision unit is enclosed outside the cryostat chamber to prevent it from thermal expansion and contraction, and keeps minimum maintenance requirement.

Artificial intelligent interface is easy to learn and operate.

Touch Screen and display all information including thickness, thickness sum, controlling time, temperature, time on/off and so on.

Sleep Function after activating this function, the temperature in cryostat chamber can be kept between -1℃ and -10℃; after stopping this function, the temperature in freeze chamber will arrive to working temperature within 30 minutes.

Control panel with locking function could avoid wrong operation.

Handwheel locking function.

Wide freezing shelf can load 17 specimen cassettes simultaneously, and two of them are equipped with peltier to meet different temperature.
