We have a second cryostat. This is also used during our scheduled pm's each year when a contracted company comes in for this purpose. Since we have frozens most days, we really can't be without a cryostat.

Subject: [Histonet] Defrosting Cryostat

How are institutions handling the requirement for defrosting the cryostat during  disinfection?  Do most sites have a spare cryostat to use when one is defrosting or do you pay staff to come in on the weekends to do this?  I know this requirement has been out for over a year and hoping for some good feedback now.
