AdID: 15049

Fully Functional Bright Vibratome Microtome - Meets Manufacturer Cooling Specs

In Like-New Condition, Both Cosmetically and Functionally

Featuring a cooling range of -35°C to 0°C and automatic retraction to prevent
sample damage, the Bright Vibratome OTF 5000 is an ideal general-use

Well-preserved and verified to be fully functional, our OTF 5000 offers like-new performance at a steep discount.

Purchasing a cryostat with an unverified refrigeration system can be risky. At
NLS, we service and repair cryostats, give precise information on the instrument’s
health, and back it with our 90-day warranty, giving you time to test the system
and ensure it meets your expectations.

Exceeds Cooling Specifications - Cools Below -35°C

Our in-house microtome specialist removed the microtome module from the chamber
and disassembled it. After disassembly, he cleaned, lubricated, and adjusted the
module until every aspect of it worked smoothly and precisely.

Our technician also tested the sample auto-retract, sectioning thickness
adjuster, power advance, and rewind. All of those components operated flawlessly.

The chamber’s temperature dipped below the manufacturer’s specification of -35°C
within a few hours, thus exceeding specifications. The quick freeze plate dropped
to -40°C very quickly and the specimen temper reached -31°C, just a few degrees
warmer than the specification.

Bearing virtually no scratches or signs of use whatsoever, this pre-owned
microtome rivals the performance of a new unit.
