To provide laboratorians with additional protection against infectious viruses, the CM1850 UV clinical cryostat features ultraviolet-light disinfection. The cryochamber can be rapidly and effectively disinfected with ultraviolet light at any time without warming or defrosting, significantly reducing the risk for laboratory personnel who deal with potentially infectious materials. This process is accomplished without producing condensation, toxic fumes, residues, or contaminated liquid waste. For additional safety, smooth surfaces inside the cryochamber allow easy, rapid, and safe chemical-spray disinfection with commercial spray disinfectants. The microtome features a protective splash-proof slot cover to prevent infectious materials from entering the microtome housing.
