RE: Leica, Zeiss or Shandon?

From:"Ford, Judi {Path~Palo Alto}" <JUDI.FORD@ROCHE.COM>

Hi Todd
We just went through the process of buying a new cryostat. The two we looked
at were Leica and Cryostar HM560(Zeiss/Microm - now Richard Allen).  Both
are good.  Our biggest issue was ergonomics so that influenced our choice.
The one thing I would suggest is that you call for a demo for the ones you
are thinking about purchasing. Ask for at least a week or two to really get
the feel of the machine.  Both companies were really helpful.  Until you
have hands-on experience there really isn't a good way to make a good
choice. Recommendations from others also helps.  Good luck!
