The Science of Cryoembedding for High-Quality Frozen Sections
PrestoCHILL reduces freezing time to 60 seconds: it eliminates freezing artifacts through ultrafast freezing, preventing the formation of ice crystals. Cut fatty tissues like breast or lymph nodes can be freezed without any sort of difficulty and without the distortion of delicate honeycomb structures.
It is possible to obtain perfectly “flat plane” surfaces to reduce trimming time and to cut easily while using the patented “face down” embedding technique.
MCC is a proprietary formulation of glycols and resins specifically developed for optimal support during cryotomy of dissected tissues down to -40°C.
Being water soluble, MCC doesn’t leave residue on the slides, eliminating non specific background staining. Additionally, MCC will not dull microtome knives.
