Tissue-Tek® Cryo3® Flex Microtome/Cryostat
The Tissue-Tek® Cryo3® Flex is the 3rd generation of the trusted Cryo3 platform for fast sectioning of frozen tissue specimens. This cryostat is equipped with new, innovative features designed to get complete sections faster and to preserve valuable tissue. Of the new features, the most important is the fine angle adjustment of the 3D Precision Chuck on all 3 axes. It uniquely ensures accurate alignment of the block face to the blade, reduces users’ trimming time and preserves patients’ specimens. Furthermore, the sturdy chuck retains its position when locked and unlocked, eliminating any time and effort spent realigning the cutting angle. The Tissue-Tek Cryo3 Flex is available in three configurations, to meet every laboratories needs and budget demands. No matter which model you choose, you will benefit from time-tested methods, operator simplicity, minimal maintenance and of course renowned Sakura Tissue-Tek reliability.
The Science of Cryoembedding for High-Quality Frozen Sections
It’s time to revolutionize the rapid freezing process
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.
- No freezing artifacts
- 60 seconds freezing time
- An all-dry system
- Full downloadable documentation
- No liquid nitrogen
- No Co2 – No isopentane
Processor/Stainer for High-Quality Frozen Sections
The final step towards frozen sections of permanent-like quality
PRESTO PRO is an innovative benchtop processor/stainer for high-quality frozen sections. It features a standardized approach to processing the slide with FineFIX, a patented Milestone solution followed by fully automated staining protocols.
It is now possible to produce frozen sections with a permanent-like quality by combining the artifact-free freezing of tissues of the PrestoCHILL unit with the outstanding features of the all-new PRESTO PRO processing/staining unit.
