I am hoping to purchase a new cryostat within the next few weeks.
Currently we have an antiquated Tissue Tek that was purchased in 1988
(!). Right now we have a Leica CM1950 that we are demoing and I am
looking at demoing a Thermo Scientific Microm HM550. We really like the
Leica (this one has a vacuum and UV disinfection), but of course I
haven't tried any other brand to compare.
I would appreciate any comments regarding these two cryostats or any
others that you feel would merit a demonstration. We do not perform a
huge amount of frozen sections, but enough so that we need a unit that
is reliable, easy to use, and is ergonomic.
