Cryo Dry Diamond Knife

DiATOME cryo diamond knives may be used for all low temperature situations such as sectioning of cryo-protected specimens, frozen hydrated specimens and industrial samples such as polymers and rubber.

There are numerous advantages to our cryo diamond knives as opposed to glass knives:

  • They produce thinner sections.
  • Ultrathin and semithin sections with the same knife.
  • Easy to produce long ribbons of sections.
  • Less compression and greater uniformity of sections.
  • You gain time. No knife manufacturing, no knife changing, hence no waiting for temperature equilibration.

Cryo 25°

The Cryo 25° knife is designed for sectioning frozen hydrated specimens. The 25° angle results in the least possible compression and the best structure preservation.

The seal is made of a cold-resistant epoxy resin.
