The Vibratome(tm) 7500 Self Decontaminating Cryostat turns itself into a
dishwasher and jet sprays decontaminating fluids all over the inside of
the unit. Initiate at the touch of a button, and in 3.5 hours it is
cold and ready to cut again. No manual labor. See the following link:

I was just looking over the CAP recommendations for routine
of the cryostat. It suggests cleaning regularly with 70% alcohol and
decontaminating with a tuberculoidal disinfectant weekly. We do
approximately 30-50 frozens weekly. My question - would the 70% alcohol
need to be followed by acetone to prevent freezing? Does anyone
decontaminate their cryostats weekly - the older models would require an
excessive amount of work? We have a Shandon model as a backup which
formalin for fumigation, so that would not pose such a problem. Any
this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!
