Introducing the Avantik QS12

QS12 Benefits

QS12 Cryostat - Convenient Touchscreen

EZ-Touch | Touchscreen User Interface

The EZ touch interface increases the ergonomics of the instrument allowing for ease of use and a central location to conveniently control all cryostat functions. The durable and responsive touchscreen enables technicians to operate the interface with or without gloved hands.

Unmatched blade stability

The unique “dovetail” bladeholder base design provides complete stability and prevents lateral movement or vibration, which eliminates common sectioning problems such as chatter, venetian blind, and thick/thin.

Improved section quality and consistency

The fully adjustable, extra-wide anti-roll glass helps deliver consistent, artifact-free sections. Automatic specimen retraction on the return stroke protects the specimen from contact with the blade or bladeholder surfaces preventing friction or damage to the surface of the specimen and preserving the quality of subsequent sections.

Accurate section measurement

The sophisticated stepper motor technology delivers the most precise advance available. This enables the operator to achieve precise trim thickness, section thickness, and sectioning depth measurement in microns.

Convenient memory function

The memory function provides a quick, predefined advance of each specimen to the knife edge, allowing the operator to record the last position of the specimen relative to the blade before removing it. The specimen can then be automatically returned to the same position if additional sections are required.

The QS12 and QS12UV provide an exceptional level of precision for accurate sectioning and specimen placement and handling. The advanced technology of the QS12, from the dovetail bladeholder to the EZ-Touch Touchscreen Interface and automated features make it simple for technicians to obtain consistent, high-quality, perfect sections every time.
