The departmental cryostat is a Bright OTF5000, 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.

Use of the cryostat is restricted to members of the Neuroscience Department.  Room E4011
