Glass knife maker GKM-2:
>Solid, Heavy Design
>Easily Produces Consistent, Controlled Breaks
>Digital Readout Displays Load Applied to Glass as Breaking Arm is Moved. The load is controlled through the constant feedback displayed on the digital readout as the clamping handle and breaking arm are adjusted. Digital readout number around "60" for the correct load
>Produces Knives from 6mm Up to 8mm Wide in precise 25 mm glass squares with ease
>"Balanced Break" Method for the Sharpest Knives
>Two micrometer positioners give you precise control and repeatable scoring to align accurate 25 mm squares for diagonal breaks. Includes locking mechanism for guides so micrometers can be removed after alignment.
>Built-in Mechanical Stops for Easy Positioning
>Precision Mechanism Supports “Slow-Break” Technique
EM Tissue Processor EMP-5160:
>Number of Programs: 50, Programming is done via hand held keypad.
>Delay Start: Unlimited
>Specimen Agitation: Yes
>Specimen Temp.: Yes - Peltier Controller
>Diagnostic Codes: Built-in
>Coolant: Air cooled system
>Capped Reagent Vials: Sealed Vials for operator safety, the vials can all be loaded in a hood and the EMP5160 operated in an open room. Transfer of the vials does not expose the operator to fumes as other units do.
>Reagent volume: just a couple of milliliters of fluid for one sample up to 18ml for a full load (up to 48 sample compartments).
>Specimen holders: Three types are offered:
A) Molded plastic with three or four specimen compartments per basket.
B) Electron microscopy specimen grid baskets for staining, spec grids/baskets.
C) Single compartment specimen stack rings for larger samples.
>Specimen Capacity: 48 Specimens in four compartment baskets; 18 Specimens in three compartment baskets; 72 Electron microscopy grids in grid baskets; 12 Large specimens in stack ring holders
>Two proven sample handling systems: either the traditional snap rings with removable screens or the multicompartment baskets. Either type have all tools included.
>Battery Backup: Two battery backup systems:
A) Lithium battery for ROM protection
B) Rechargeable battery providing up to 30 minutes of full operation in the event of power failure. No temperature regulation during back-up by battery.
>Program Step Range: 1 minute to 99 hours 59 minutes
>Specimen Drip: Between reagent vials, specimens are parked in the processing chamber & lightly agitated to remove excess liquid. This is a short term process in a saturated atmosphere alleviating any possibility of air drying.
>Dimensions: H: 457 mm x W: 305 mm x D: 533.4 mm H: 18” x W: 12” x D: 21 “
>Weight: 25 kg 55 lbs.
>Voltage: 100/120/220/240 volts 50/60 Hz
>Power: Consumption 500 W
TEM Stainer QG-3100:
The QG-3100 automatic stainer increases both the staining quality and the yield by minimizing contamination, while saving time and reducing waste. Through the unit’s unique design, which uses a peristaltic pump and pinch valves, the solutions are isolated to the tubing and grid chamber. Liquids flow in only one direction. In addition to minimizing contamination, this design significantly reduces the time and waste associated with other techniques. All components exposed to the staining solutions are easy to replace. Maintenance is simple and may be performed by the user. Extra input and output channels, freely programmable routines and an exchangeable grid chamber allows the realization of various laboratory tasks (e.g. graded ethanol series).
>Closed flow system provides clean conditions and exclusion of air
>Staining procedures are reliable and reproducible
>Exposure to staining solutions is minimized: lead citrate reagent container has a piston on top to press out air to avoid contamination
>Extremely low operation costs
>Individual staining procedures may be easily configured
>Simple maintenance due to freely accessible tubing and valves
>Staining costs (per staining): Lead citrate solution & Uranyl acetate solution---Very low costs, since the user can buy these solutions in their raw form from any chemistry dealer. No expensive pre-packaged chemicals are required.
>Waste (per staining, using default protocols): Waste lead citrate / H2O 100 ml; Waste uranyl acetate / H2O 100 ml; Waste HNO3 / H2O 200 ml
>Processing times: Wash cycle time 5 min + 5 min & Staining time (typ.) 60-90 min
>Standard grid holder 40 grids
>Staining times customizable: yes
>Freely programmable staining and processing protocols: yes
>Optional inputs for alternative staining/washing solutions: 2
>Handling user interaction possible at any time, may continue program or switch to manual control of pump and valves
>At end of processing: chamber remains filled, grids immersed
>Servicing: easily accessible tubing, servicing possible by user
>Dimensions: 18”(L) x 10”(W) x 14”(H) (Main Unit), 20”(L) x 25”(W) x 14”(H) (including bottles)
>Weight: 25lb (Main Unit), 40 lb (including bottle rack and empty bottles)
>Power: 100-240VAC, 60 amps, 36 watts
