Not since cryostats were invented has there been such a small, portable yet convenient instrument. Featuring many design concepts developed from our continuous research programme, the Starlet cryostat is available in a choice of either handwheel or lever operation.

In addition to standard voltages, the Starlet is available as a battery operated 12V DC version ensuring that this cryostat really is one of the most versatile possible. The size of the Starlet makes it ideal as a back-up instrument or for use in laboratories where space is at a premium.

Fully portable, it can be transported with ease from laboratory to laboratory and is a must for use in the 'field' - the possibilities are endless. If frozen sectioning is infrequent and a full-sized, full-priced cryostat cannot be justified, the Starlet does the job and fits any budget.

Inexpensive and reliable the Starlet - ideal where space and funds are limited - really is unique amongst cryostats. Small, inexpensive and portable - a battery version is available for use 'in the field.
