Hi Diane,
  We have been happy with the Leica cryostats over the years. We have an 1800 
that is about 15 years old, an 1850 that is about 5 years old with the UV light 
for decontamination.

Dear Histonetters,

Our 11 year old cryostat is beginning to experience some unusual problems. Our 
Medical Maintenance says that they won't put a lot of money into fixing it 
because of the age of the unit. Therefore, I am asking for opinions, pros, cons 
of different brands of cryostats. I am interested in a cryostat that has the UV 
light or other source of easy decontamination. We don't do a lot of frozen 
sections but enough for us to have to have a good cryostat that is easy to 
operate and clean.  Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
