[Histonet] Cryostats

Thu Aug 3 11:35:01 CDT 2006

    We have several Leica CM3050-S model cryostats.  Since I have been
at one almost exclusively for the past month and will be for at least
another month, I can say that I love it.  They are very reliable,
comfortable to work with (sittng on a stool or chair) and easy to
manuever around in.  The sales rep is very knowledgeable for he was
previously a service technician for Leica.  The service technician is
one of the best--knowledgeable and personable.  In fact, all of the
Leica people who have been in to do service have been excellent. And,
the staff coordinating the service are very good.  Your rep is same as
ours: Paul Raimondo phone 415.359.6461.  Call him for information.
Should you want to see these, come on down (call to set a time) or talk
with Paul about arranging a visit to see one in operation, try out, etc.

We are looking into budgeting a used/new cryostat for next year, and I
was wondering how much other labs have spent on theirs, and how happy
they are with the equipment, reliability, service, etc. It's been awhile
since I've looked at units and am curious if there are any popular
pieces out there right now. Thanks a lot for the input, and feel free to
respond off-line. Vendor responses welcome.
