Thermo Shandon Cryotome FE Cryostat Microtome in Good Condition - Refrigeration Recharged and Ready for your Lab

This Thermo Shandon Cryotome FE has been thoroughly inspected and tested by our technical staff, confirming the chamber to reach -32°C and the cryobar to reach -59°C.

Inspection and testing proved this cryostat to have reliable refrigeration, smooth microtome operation, excellent advance/retraction, and a chamber that is in good condition. It’s also covered by our 90-day warranty so you can rest assured that this instrument will perform in your lab as described.

All Components Inspected and Tested by Technician

Our technical staff thoroughly inspected and tested all components of this cryostat, finding everything fully-functional, from the micron selector to how smooth handwheel operation feels. We guarantee this cryostat will perform as described. The following are just a few of the components that were checked:

- Handwheel operation: PASSED
- Knife assembly operation: PASSED
- Touchscreen interface: PASSED
- Specimen advance/retraction: PASSED
- Chamber lamp brightness: PASSED

Reliable Chamber and Cryobar Cooling

Refrigeration systems often deteriorate over time so that is why we fully recharge the refrigeration system by evacuating the refrigerant, putting it under a strong vacuum to remove any debris, and finish by filling it with new low-GWP refrigerant.

When all is done we can confidently say the refrigeration of this cryostat is sure to meet your needs, seeing as the chamber reaches -32°C and the cryobar exceeds manufacturer specification by hitting -59°C. (Please note that the lowest temperatures reached is partially dependent on the ambient temperature.)

Chamber & Exterior in Good Condition

Aside from a very small dent in the blade clamp (see photos), every aspect of this cryostat has been maintained very well.
