Étape de congélation à température contrôlée pour microtomes


The controller is designed around a new generation of switching power supplies which are smaller and lighter than the older BFS supplies.

The supplies are overrated 100% to ensure cool operation and continuous service.


Safety features include overtemperature alarm with power shut down in the event of inadequate flow of cooling water or overuse of the thaw feature.
 

  • Frozen tissue sections from most microtomes
  • Fast freezing preserves cell detail
  • Freeze to temperatures as low as -40°C
  • Temperature adjustable for optimum cutting
  • Quick thaw for easy cleanup
  • No CO2 needed-minimal cost to run
     

Innovative new stage design

  • An etched grid on top plate promotes better adhesion of frozen sample.
  • Thinner stage design reduces the need for a knife raising block.
  • Waterways inside the stage are redesigned to create a single passage to improve heat transfer and reduce potential for blockage.
  • Single large peltier module results in uniform temperature across the entire surface of the stage.
  • Redesigned mounting hardware facilitates the direct attachment of blocks or posts to the underside of the stage and a new adapter plate system allows mounting on a variety of different microtomes.

Safety features

  • Controller incorporates fan assisted internal cooling to maintain low internal component temperatures
  • Continuous display of both set and run temperatures
  • Simple digital temperature control set-up
  • Auxiliary switched AC output for accessories (see options).
  • P.I.D. microprocessor based temperature controller with autotuning feature and feedback sensor breakage alarm. Adjustable feet provide convenient viewing angle for display.

Technical features

  • 110 to 230V AC operation
  • Temperature control to within 0.5°C in the range of -40°C to ambient.
  • Thaw switch to quickly release frozen samples.

Optional Accessories

  • Water Pump and Tank Unit
  • In-Line Sediment Water Filter
