The Shandon Cryotome E is an automated cryostat ideal even for prolonged applications. The system features touch-key controls with specimen travel graphic indicator and clear digital displays of cryochamber and cryobar temperatures.

The Shandon Cryotome E's precision microtome is lightweight, has a complete travel range, and a 360-degree specimen orientation capability. Housed outside the cryochamber, the microtome is easy to clean and maintain. The Shandon microtome cryostat also has an ACCU-FEED system with 25,000µm advance can be set at 1-20µm intervals in 1µm increments and 20-60µm intervals at 5µm increments.

The well-illuminated, stainless-steel cryochamber of the Cryotome E system utilizes open-top design to minimize temperature gain during prolonged use. It can extend the temperature down to -30°C (-22°F). The Peltier-controlled cold spot on Cryobar aids quick-freezing to -60°C (-76°F), reducing ice crystal artifact formation. The cryochamber also features a CFC-free refrigerant, foam insulation, and automatic programmable defrost.

Additionally, the Shandon Cryotome E is designed with ergonomics and safety in mind. Along with a locking, frost-free window and a positive-locking flywheel with three-position locks, the system features formaldehyde fumigation of the cryochamber.
