Improved ergonomics and functionality improve operator comfort and enhance workflow.

RUNCORN, United Kingdom - A new manual cryostat offers scientists improved functionality and ergonomics, ensuring efficient, high-quality frozen sectioning.

The Thermo Scientific HM525 NX is a routine clinical cryostat that has 27 cooled specimen positions, including 4 fast freeze positions, allowing a high degree of flexibility when managing specimens.

"Pathologists rely on quick turnaround time and excellent sectioning quality from their cryostat," said Richard Vernon, commercial product manager, anatomical pathology, for Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Our HM525 NX cryostat gives them the functionality and control to achieve diagnosis rapidly."

Designed with an LCD touch screen interface with icon-driven software, operation is streamlined for the user. Users can change parameters simply and quickly to meet the demands of different specimen types.

In addition, the HM525 NX offers:

• Optional powerful on-demand, or scheduled, UV disinfection can be initiated through the intuitive icon-driven software to protect the operator.
• Reliable and tested stepper motor technology delivers reproducible section thickness (sectioning range 1-500Ám; 64mm vertical specimen stroke).
• Enhanced user comfort while seated at the cryostat during long cutting sessions by incorporating greater knee space.
