Thermo Scientific Micron HM550 VPD - Fully Functional Cryostat with Vacutome & Automatic Disinfection

Fully tested and fully functional, we can guarantee that this Thermo Scientific Microm HM 550 VPD meets manufacturer specifications. With its quick chamber cooling and customizable sectioning, our HM 550 VPD offers excellent performance at a steep discount.

In describing this instrument, our technician remarked that it works exceptionally well and continued to sing its praises several more times. The point is: if you buy this, youll feel like youre using a brand new cryostat.. with, of course, some minor cosmetic wear from use and a thin scratch on the display screen (as shown in the photos).

The HM 550s integrated disinfection system permeates the chamber with a 3-5 micron mist, ensuring that the entire chamber is effectively cleaned.

Besides its disinfection system, the HM 550 also includes:

- 12 fast-freezing stage stations
- Cooling head for chilling individual samples
- Integrated vacutome produces wrinkle-free sections
