RE: [Histonet] cryostats


I have never used a H/B, but I would give it a try.  Try both before you buy.  I have a Leica 1850 and it had to be replaced within two years.  The current one is doing fine.  If you get a good one the Leica's are okay except for the blade holder.  It has to be taken apart and adjusted every time you change the blade( the pressure clip is to soft).  Now if you could choose another company I would try Microm(Richard Allan).

Hi all,

Question: If you had to buy a new cryostat, and you had to chose between 
a Hacker Bright or a Leica, which would you purchase, and please tell me 
why. Mainly I would love to hear from anyone that has had these in the 
last 10 years.
I really need your input on this, detailed input, especially in regards 
to when you bought the machine that you do not like and how long before 
it started giving you trouble.

Thanks in advance,
