RH 08 Cryostat Microtome

RH scientific RH08 Cryostat Microtome features high refrigeration capacity, fast cooling and stable sectioning result.


Reliable section quality

Exquisite mechanisms

Driven by precise motors and durable guide rails, RH Scientific’s RH08 cryostat produces uniform section continuously and fears not heavy workload.

Applicable to all types of tissues

RH Scientific’s RH08cryostat works smoothly when sectioning different kinds of tissues, hard or soft, large or small.

Fulfill laboratory requirements

18 freezing stations and 2 Peltier elements on the large freezing shelf with clear number markings on the large freezing shelf aid specimen identification during sectioning.

Stable blade hold

The high-quality blade holder adapts to both high and low profile blades and has an arc design to minimize blade trembling.

Relaxing user experience

All crucial information at a glance

The large color touch screen on RH scientific’s RH08 cryostat allows for the display of important parameters and toggles, making it easy to learn and use. A side control panel is present for convenient operation.

Hassel-free components

The heat extractor is coated with an anti-sticking layer to prevent sticking. Anti-roll guide designed with clamp can be hold at any position flexibly. The freezing shelf is frost-free.

Clear sight all the time

The glass window is heated to prevent frost from building up.

Cooling fast, cooling lasts

Powerful compressor

Continuous sectioning is made possible thanks to the quality compressor and smart temperature control algorithm.

Rapid cooling peltier stations

The peltier stations can rapidly reach and stablize around -55℃ to -60℃.

Innovative design, we care about you

Schedule to fit your schedule

UV disinfection and defrosting can be activated as scheduled or manually to synchronize with the laboratory’s routine. RH Scientific’s RH08 can be switched to sleep mode according to the preset schedule and thus helps to save energy.

Throughout drying

Extra drying function allows for rapid expulsion of moist in the chamber, saves the time from naturally drying and provides better drying results.


The monolithic shell of the cryostat is maintain and clean.
