2212-021 Starlet Portable

The size of the Starlet makes it ideal as a back-up instrument or for use in laboratories where space is at a premium. Fully portable, it can be transported with ease from laboratory to laboratory and is a must for use in the ‘field’ – the possibilities are endless. If frozen sectioning is infrequent and a full-sized, full-priced cryostat cannot be justified, the Starlet does the job and fits any budget. Inexpensive and reliable, the Starlet, ideal where space and funds are limited, really is unique amongst cryostats.

Key Features

The Compact Cryostat

The Compact Cryostat

Of an elegant appearance, durable and easy to clean, the Starlet cabinet is manufactured using scratch, solvent and detergent resistant ABS Polymer and Stelvetite Polymer coated steel. The chamber is of stainless steel construction and comes complete with a detachable quick freezer bar and detachable storage shelf. Easy to clean and resistant to common decontaminating agents, the working chamber is convenient to use.

The Miniature Radial Microtome

The Miniature Radial Microtome

Unique to and designed specifically for the Starlet, the microtome is of radial, flat cutting design and can be operated by either a handwheel or a lever. Weighing approximately 1.8kg, the microtome is capable of cutting a wide range of specimens including soft tissue, hair follicle, cardiac muscle and lung. The Magnacut disposable blade system is fitted as standard, using long-life disposable blades for quick results, and of course, it eliminates the inconvenience of knife resharpening.

The Compact Cryostat
Of an elegant appearance, durable and easy to clean, the Starlet cabinet is manufactured using scratch, solvent and detergent resistant ABS Polymer and Stelvetite Polymer coated steel. The chamber is of stainless steel construction and comes complete with a detachable quick freezer bar and detachable storage shelf. Easy to clean and resistant to common decontaminating agents, the working chamber is convenient to use.

Being relatively small the Starlet can provide rapid cooldown times, down to -35°C in the chamber with the detachable cold storage bar. While not in use, an insulated cover is pressed in place to ensure efficient running of the refrigeration system and also assists in reducing frosting. If the unit is transported, the chamber will remain cold for prolonged periods.

The Miniature Radial Microtome
Unique to and designed specifically for the Starlet, the microtome is of radial, flat cutting design and can be operated by either a handwheel or a lever. Weighing approximately 1.8kg, the microtome is capable of cutting a wide range of specimens including soft tissue, hair follicle, cardiac muscle and lung. The Magnacut disposable blade system is fitted as standard, using long-life disposable blades for quick results, and of course, it eliminates the inconvenience of knife resharpening.

Complete with an Easi-Set anti-roll plate, the Starlet is fitted with a 2-12μm feed screw for sectioning in 2μm increments, although a 4-24μm feed screw is available as an alternative. Taking only seconds to remove from the chamber, the microtome is easy to clean, resists corrosion and is easy to service. Very little routine maintenance is required.

Environmentally Compliant
The Starlet uses a HFC refrigerant blend that is in compliance with GWP guidelines.
