RE: [Histonet] How about another cryostat request?

From:"Ingles Claire"

Have you checked around for reconditioned/used equipment? It is alot cheaper, and most companies still have warranties on the work. Hope this helps.

Subject: [Histonet] How about another cryostat request?

I have read some of the archives about cryostats, some like Microm, others
Leica. I finally managed to scrape together about 15K to spend on a
cryostat, but the cheapest (not necessarily the best) I found was a Thermo
Richard Allan HM550 SDM (Stripped-Down Model, haha) for 16K, but it
recently went up to 20K so it is pretty much out of my market. I plan to
use a cryostat to section mostly skin and artificial skin tissues about 4
um thick. Does anybody have any idea what I should be looking for? Thanks
for your help.
