 I have had the Microm HM 560 Cryo-star for nearly two years now 
and love it. I/we chose this after trying several others, all of which 
were very good but the Microm had the edge with a few "extras" 
that were important to the work we do, including, independent knife 
and specimen temperature control, vacuum attachment for removal 
and disinfection of debris and "stretching" sections, automatic 
specimen advance, motorized height adjustment for comfort. 
You are right to get it (and others) on demo. to ensure all users are 
happy with the instrument.
