Cryostat Microtome YR426

Manufacturer: Kalstein

Manufacturer: Kalstein

Product Description

YR426 Cryostat Microtome features convenient operation and a modern fully automatic rotary microtome. For extra convenience the system includes a spacious stainless-steel chamber, 24 easily accessible freezing positions and well illuminated cooling chamber that can be effectively cooled down to -40 °C.

  • 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 thatare 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 using35 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 timerare all included on the main display
  • Auto sleep function results in longer compressor life: the cryo-chambertemperature automatically stays in a range of -1 to -9℃ 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 26specimens at the same time; Two holes for semiconductor refrigeration
  • It has cleaning device, easy help customer to clean the unit
  • Specimen Orientation:XY – 12°; Z– 360° adjustable at any orientations to ensure precise placement
  • Self-detection function for the temperature senor, can helpto warn the failure on temperature senor.
