Product Specifications

Product specifications

The optimal frozen section begins with an evenly and completely frozen tissue block in which the block face to be sectioned is flat and includes a complete, full faced section of the tissue submitted.

  • Standardised freezing: Freezing at -40°C for all types of tissues, even for those difficult to cut at the cryostat such as breast and lymph nodes.
  • High throughput: Up to 6 samples can be frozen in parallel or in sequential order in  6 minutes.
  • Faster sectioning: Reduced trimming time at the cryostat through planarity of specimen mounted in cryoembedding compound.
  • Patented technique: Uses the patented ‘face down’ embedding technique to obtain perfectly ‘flat plane’ surfaces.
  • Best operating procedure: Step by step application guidelines.Images PrestoCHILL 08
  • Improved quality: Eliminates compression artefacts and retraction of tissues.
  • High safety standards: HEPA filter for improved operator safety.
  • Environmentally friendly: Advanced technology. Stirling cooler uses Helium gas as a refrigerant in a sealed stainless steel chamber. No standard compressor, therefore no CFC.
  • Automated: Fully automatic defrost feature.
  • Fully documentable: USB port enables both updating of software and downloading of event logs for full documentation.
  • Space saving: Small footprint accommodates space restricted lab or clinic environments.
