Cold fingers.

A cold finger is a piece of laboratory equipment that is used to generate a localized cold surface. It is named for its resemblance to a finger as is a type of cold trap.

Typically a cold finger is used in a sublimation apparatus, or can be used as compact version of a condenser in either reflux reaction or distillation apparatus.

The device usually consists of a chamber in which a liquid (typically cold tap water) can enter and leave. Another version involves filling the device with a cold solid such as ice, or dry ice.
