UVC3 Cryo Chamber


Cryo Chamber specifically designed for cryo specimen preparation.

The UVC3 Cryo Chamber has been specifically designed for cryo specimen preparation to provide an economical yet precisely controlled low temperature environment for polymerisation of polymers and resins and can also be used for dehydration and infiltration of cryo specimens. The Unit has a large insulated chamber and comprises fully automatic temperature control for the polymerisation process.


  • Liquid crystal display and PLC control
  • Holds up to 66 samples with BEEM Cryo Capsule Holders
  • Temperature range can be set from -10°C to -40°C (14°F to -40°F)
  • Includes memory function for Min/Max temperatures during any run
  • Fan cooled electronic ballast for UV lamp tubes
  • Universal voltage
  • 365nm ultraviolet lamps thermally shielded by dual pane Plexiglas
  • Perfect for all resins cured by 365nm UV radiation, including: Lowicryl, LR White and LR Gold


  • Add dry ice to the chamber
  • Set desired temperature (-10°C to -40°C / 14°F to -40°F)
  • Turn on UV Lamps and cure embedding resins
