Condensation is often a problem when scanning tubes straight from cryogenic storage. Our unique cryoprotective coating reduces the occurence of condensation; and as our method does not use electircal components, fans or heat, the operation is silent, reliable and does not compromise samples by thawing tubes.

Unparalleled scanning quality
