The CS202F-DMX-19-SCC is a low cost top loading cryostat. This sample in vapor system is ideally suited for samples that are not thermally conductive, such as ceramics and glass. Additionally, because the sample space is no longer under vacuum, the samples can be changed and cooled in rapid succession.

Originally called the Superconductor Characterization Cryostat (SCC), this system has a very small tail and nonmagnetic material construction, making it a great upgrade for AC susceptibility and VSM systems.
