RE: Cryostat Disposable blades

From:Jim at ProSciTech <>

high profile 76 x 14 x 0.43mm
low profile 76x8x0.25mm
The low profile is the standard dimensions of most brands. We distribute 
Sturkey (of USA) blades in our market. In North America you can purchase those 
blades from Sturkey direct. The high profile blades are more popular with 
cryostats since they are more robust and dimensionally more stable.
There is more detail in our online (Home>Contents> page U1)
