Precisionary Cryostat CF-2200

  • Our CF-2200 cryostat is a precision freeze-cutting microtome that has 360-degree specimen orientation capability and sectioning control down to 1-µm precision. The CF-2200 has an illuminated, stainless steel freeze chamber with an open slide-top design. Chamber freezing temperature can be controlled down to -30°C (-22°F). The Peltier-controlled sidebar can be quick frozen down to -60°C (-76°F), which helps reduce ice crystal artifact formation. The cryostat is easy to clean and maintain, and is designed with ergonomics and safety in mind. The CF-2200 features a single compressor.
