Fully-Functional Thermo Shandon Cryotome FSE - Refrigeration Recharged and Ready for Operation

Protected by our 90-Day Warranty

This Thermo Shandon Cryotome FSE has been thoroughly inspected and tested by our technician, confirming the chamber to reach -33°C, the cryobar to reach -60°C, and the specimen head to reach -50°C, meeting manufacturer specification with the chamber just shy of -35°C.

This cryostat is in good physical condition with smooth handwheel and knife assembly operation and chamber surfaces showing only minor wear from use. A high-profile knife holder assembly, anti-roll plate, and power cable are included.

All Components Inspected and Tested by Technical Staff

Our technician tested each component of this cryotome, from refrigeration all the way down to the micron selector. No feature is too small for our technicians to inspect and test. We guarantee this cryotome fully-functional and ready for operation the day you receive it.

Tissue sectioning and supporting features tested:

- Handwheel and knife assembly operation is smooth
- Touchscreen interface is responsive and bright
- Specimen travel and micron selector tested
- Chamber lamp tested

Chamber, Cryobar, and Specimen Cooling Nicely

Refrigeration systems often deteriorate over time so that’s why fully recharge the refrigeration system by removing the refrigerant, putting a strong vacuum on the system to remove any debris and water that has accumulated, and finish the process by filling it with new refrigerant.

We thoroughly tested this system to ensure the refrigeration is operating at manufacturer specification. The cryobar and specimen cooling on this cryostat have been tested and confirmed to meet manufacturer specifications, but the chamber is just shy of -35°C.

Instrument testing and services included the following:

- Refrigeration recharged
- Chamber temperature tested to -33°C
- Cryobar temperature tested to -60°C
- Specimen temperature tested to -50°C
- Exterior and chamber surfaces cleaned

Equipped and Read for Operation in your Lab

This cryotome is clean and ready for tissue sectioning. Blades will need to be acquired separately.

The following is included with this system:

- Thermo Shandon Cryotome FSE
- High-profile knife holder
- Anti-roll plate
- 4x Specimen discs
- Power Cable
