The Science of Cryoembedding for High-Quality Frozen Sections
PrestoCHILL reduces freezing time to 60 seconds and eliminates freezing artifacts through ultrafast freezing, preventing the formation of ice crystals. Cut fatty tissues, like breast or lymph nodes, can be frozen without difficulty and without the distortion of their delicate honeycomb structures.
While using Milestone’s patented “face-down” embedding technique and PrestoCHILL, it is possible to obtain perfectly “flat plane” surfaces to reduce trimming time and cut more easily.
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.
