Cryostats are used for sectioning fresh frozen tissue at cryogenic temperatures for cancer diagnostics or research. A cryostat is utilized for Mohs surgery to section cancerous tissue and examine it under a microscope for diagnosis. A cryostat will hold temperatures of -20 to -35 degrees celsius, and in some cases can cool a sample as low as -50 degrees celsius. A tissue sample is embedded in a tissue freezing medium on a ‘cryochuck’ (or specimen disc). Cryostats keep low temperatures with a refrigeration system that utilizes a compressor.
Rankin supplies both new and professionally refurbished cryostats, reconditioned back to OEM specification. We reset the lifespan on used cryostats through our remanufacturing process with trained biomedical technicians.
