Critical Point Dryers with High Sample Visibility – E3000 and E3100 from Quorum Technologies

The E3000 from Quorum Technologies has an innovative design that offers unequalled visibility of the critical point drying process and an excellent view of the fluid level in the chamber. Unlike most of the more complicated critical point dryer designs, it is much easier to see the phase change at the critical point.

In cases where an increased chamber volume is needed, the large capacity model E3100 is available. The chamber dimensions are 63.5mm internal diameter x 82mm in length, offering around three times the volume of the E3000. The transfer boat will also accept three times the number of specimen baskets.

Key Features

The key features of the E3000 and E3100 are:

  • Simple robust construction, which is easy to maintain and many critical point dryer users carry out their own routine maintenance
  • Large viewing window and horizontal chamber - excellent visibility of the fluid level and drying process
  • Large robust valves for draining of fluids, ingress of CO2 and venting of gas is very durable; the rapid ingress of CO2 helps prevents pre-drying of specimens
  • Every critical point dryer unit is pressure tested to 2,500psi and a certificate is issued. A pressure bursting disc is also fitted to safeguard against misuse
  • Optional specimen holders for coverslips and TEM grids. Porous pots are available for fragile or very small specimens
