Cryostat

The Departmental Cryostat is a Bright OTF5000 cryostat, and the new OTF5000 brings the extensive range of Bright cryostats completely up to date. This cryostat is capable of cutting a wide diversity of specimens from eye to brain. Allowing full anti-roll plate adjustment for perfect results coupled with long lasting temperature stability, the OTF5000 can truly be described as the complete cryostat.

All new users must be trained by Xin-Ming Ma before using the cryostat alone without supervision. Use of the cryostat is restricted to members of the Neuroscience Department. For training or question with the cryostat, please contact: Dr. Xin-Ming Ma, ma@uchc.edu, 860-679-4280, Room E4030.
