Product Description The cryostat HM 500 OM from MICROM is a highly efficient microtome-cryostat for a cutting temperature range down to -40°C. Designed as an upright standing unit with an open-top working area, the instrument allows
convenient and ergonomic handling in standing and sitting position.
The cryostat has a cooling system to control the temperature of the working area of the microtome and knife carrier as well as to cool the freezing stations for freezing-on specimens on the specimen stages. A second cooling system represents the specimen fast cooling and temperature control unit. With this unit, the specimen can be frozen-on very quickly. The desired cutting temperature is also very rapidly achieved after switching over to regulated
cooling; independently of the present temperature in the microtome chamber. Another function quickly allows detaching the specimen.
The microtome has a section thickness range from 0,5 µm to 90 µm. The motorized coarse feed system allows specimen forward and backward travel. An additional trimming function with values from 5 µm to 300 µm permits the fine adjustment up to the first cuts and results in larger section thicknesses when trimming. In addition, the model HM 500 OM has a motorized cutting drive with three modes of operation and an emergency-stop device, which can be controlled by means of the operating controls or the foot pedal.

INCLUDES VACUTOME OPTION:
The unit consists of a disposable blade carrier EV equipped with a vacuum anti-roll hood for the stretching and/or suction process. The Vacutome includes a special blade carrier with which a vacuum can be applied just below the
blade edge for stretching sections or the disposal of section waste. For this, the blade carrier features a slot that can be opened and closed by means of the vacuum anti-roll hood through an inserted flap. A vacuum pump, installed in the cryostat, generates the vacuum needed for the suction.

VACUTOME SPECIFICATIONS:

Max. section thickness to be disposed of: 80 µm
Max. section thickness to be stretched: 80 µm
Min. section thickness to be stretched: 1 µm
