# T-Pod

The TPod is an attachment that fits between the Sample Handling Unit (SHU) and the cell block (see figure below), and allows the cell block to be thermostated separately from the main waterbath. This allows cell temperatures as low as -20°C to be used without the syringes and valves being thermostated and indeed, subject to such potentially damaging temperatures.
