Manufacturer: Kalstein


The Cryostat Microtome YR426-1 is an advanced medical device, ideal for the rapid analysis of pathological sections of human, animal, and plant tissues. Hospitals, medical schools, forensic medicine, and animal and plant research units widely use this device. The machine consists of four main parts: the top part includes a microcomputer control and an operation panel with temperature and work status display; the central part is a low-temperature freezer for quick tissue freezing and cutting operations; the bottom part contains the compressor cooling unit, while the central and rear parts handle the mechanical transmission and motor drive.

Features and Specifications

The YR426-1 offers a wide temperature control range, from 10 โ„ƒ to -50 โ„ƒ, for the chamber, freezing shelf, and specimen holder. Additionally, its semiconductor cooling system can reach -60 โ„ƒ, with a rapid cooling time of only 15 minutes. This microtome has a freezing station capacity for 36 pieces and includes 8 Pelletier units. Its 10-inch color LCD touchscreen provides an intuitive interface, displaying total cuts, section thickness, temperature control, and more. Moreover, the humanized hibernation function and temperature sensor self-check capability ensure efficient and reliable performance.

Market Price

The Cryostat Microtome YR426-1 is competitively priced, ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 USD, depending on the distributor and additional selected configurations. This price reflects its advanced technology and durability, offering excellent value for institutions looking to optimize their pathological analysis processes.
