If you use anything often enough, it is wise to have a back-up, if possible. Microtomes, and especially cryostats, tend to malfunction without warning and can leave you "stranded". We have a back-up that isn't ours, but we have access to it.  That's another option.  Make friends with someone else who has one and strike an arrangement with them.

Subject: [Histonet] back up cryostat

I would like to know what the consensus is on having a backup cryostat.
Does anyone have a back up cryostat?

I am nervous about not having a backup cryostat
