The Coolbox is a strongly recommended add-on accessory that provides a simple, all-in-one laser cooling solution that provides both an air and water pump in a single convenient device that is easy to setup. The built-in exhaust fan helps keep the Muse Core’s workspace clear of smoke and fumes, however, be sure to use proper fume extraction methods.
