The Cryo Bath has a low working temperature that freezes tissue samples quickly, preventing microscopic ice crystals from developing and samples from distorting. The Cryo Bath is not a controlled cooling source; it is designed to run at maximum cooling.

Normal Operation of the Cryo Bath:
The cryo bath will take approximately one hour to achieve a -60ºC working temperature. Once the cyro bath has reached working temperature, remove the reservoir cover and slowly submerge the immersion basket in the reservoir. Use the tissue mounts (chucks – not supplied) and chuck holder to position the samples properly in the sample basket (see image #2 in photo gallery). Replace the reservoir cover.
It is recommended to thoroughly clean the bath before each use. Use only mild soap & water when cleaning. Do not use steel wool as damage to the unit may result. Non-steel scouring pads are acceptable. The entire unit is housed in a tough, well-insulated stainless steel casing that is corrosion and chemical resistant.
The unit draws air through the rear and exhausts it through the side vents. The vents should be inspected regularly for the accumulation of dust and cleaned as required.
To keep the refrigeration system operating at optimum cooling capacity, the reusable filter located at the rear of the unit should be kept free of dust and dirt. It should be checked on a scheduled basis and cleaned as required.
To access the air filter, remove the four screws securing the grille cover to the unit’s housing, detach the grille and then gently remove the air filter from the filter compartment (see image #4 and #5 in photo gallery). Use a mild detergent and water solution to wash off any accumulated dust and dirt and then rinse and dry thoroughly before reinstalling.
