This section offers you a simple system of stainless steel well bars, chucks and freezing blocks, kept cold in cryostat, allow you to perform a variety of precision embedding techniques addressing the most difficult embedding tasks with ease and minimum time needed.
- 20 to 60 seconds to freeze (depending on the well size)
- Multiple samples handled quickly
- No monitoring necessary (for placement of heat extractor)
- Precise flat or on edge embedding
- Predictable orientation
- Liquid samples easily embedded
- No crush artifact caused by heat extractor weight
Reduced Tissue Waste
- Less trimming the result of flat plane of embedding
- Minute samples embedding in the same plane.
Easy and Comfortable
- Less cryostat adjustments
- Comfortably preformed on a shelf just inside most cryostats
- Easy to used – and safe time

These stainless steel chucks are designed to be used cold for rapid freezing, and to maximize the gripping power required to hold the embedded tissue block. The stem of the chuck provides the focal point for a sharp tap resulting in an easily release of the block from the well. These chucks fit many of the major brand cryostat and can be used in most cryostats with use of an adapter. These Chuck Adapters have stem measures 20mm L x 9mm diameter, and fit Leica and most Microm cryostats. We also offer adapters to use these chuck for other cryostats.

Thee stainless steel rectangular blocks are a useful tool for a number of tasks. They serve as a heat extractor, designed to fit over the stem of the chuck. The flat surfaces can also be used as an extra heat extractor when using conventional cryostat embedding technique. The freezing block also served as a dislodging tool. A light tap of the chuck stem cleaves the plane of adhesion holding of the formed block to the well. These blocks also serve as a convenient hand held flat freezing surface useful in gently cooling the tissue without the use of sprays and in plastering technique.

These thin transparent polyvinyl slides serve as a surface to precisely orient the tissue into the desired position and as a means to accurately transfer tissue to the embedding well floor. Tissue is applied face down to the end of the dispensing slide where it can be visualized from below and manipulated into position. The face that is visible will be laid onto the well floor and will ultimately be the embedded surface to be sectioned.

Cutting board / Freezing griddle: The steel “freezing griddle” serves as a freezing surface on which to prepare frozen blocks when used in conjunction with the elevated freezing block. The small attached cutting board serves as a cold surface to cut the frozen block while maintaining the freezing temperature. This simple piece of apparatus is kept cold in the cryostat and is removed to the work bench only during the process of cutting the frozen block. As sections are cut, they are kept cold on the freezing griddle.
Elevated Freezing Block: This steel block is kept cold in the cryostat and in used in conjunction with the freezing griddle. The two broad sides of the block are equipped with feet measuring 3.0 mm on one side and 4.5 mm on the other. The feet create a space between the two steel bars in which the frozen blocks are prepared. Additional elevating bars are supplied to further elevate the block when preparing very thick portion of tissue.
