Re: [Histonet] Embedding Centers

We've had lots of problems with our Microm in a little over a year, compressors mainly --- we've gone through two!  So we would not recommend this company.

I will be totally different as i am buying the Thermo Shandon Embedding Center. I had it in for demo and it had all the features the others have for timing and pre-sets as well as some independent temperature ranges I likes. Also the cold plate is seperate so I can have it on either side or in another area if I want for special projects. Good Luck, I think they all work well it just depends for me on features and price and Shandon also had the right price.
