The IEC Minotome Plus is an automatic cryostat with the same proven Minot microtome technology. The system carries an easy-to-use motorized specimen advance-and-retract feature which offers the ultimate speed, convenience and safety. This cryostat also keeps operators' hands out of the chamber entirely, except when placing the specimen on the holder or adjusting the micron setting.

The Minotome Plus, with its inset sides and steeper front, is designed to increase user comfort and overall productivity. It features cool-down to -30°C with accurate temperature control at the knife edge. A knife safety guard offers the operator further protection from injury. Included is a -40°C quick freeze plate which accommodates numerous samples and has convenient temperature readout. The cryostat offers automatic and manual defrost modes.

The IEC Minotome Plus includes knife guards, heat extractor and anti-roll assembly. Additional accessories include disposable blade holder, heavy-duty disposable blades, two specimen plates (concentric circle and cross-hatched, 26 mm), lubricating oil, freezing spray, freezing medium, dyes for specimen samples, 3 brushes ( 1/8”, 1/4”, 3/8” W bristles), specimen holder shelf and protective mat.
