The Precision Cryoembedding System
is a combination of simple techniques and
apparatus which allows the user to embed tissues for frozen section
with a level of control and predictability that can surpass even paraffin
“Face down cryoembedding”
technique is similar to routine paraffin embedding but instead of standing
tissue into solidifying paraffin we are adhering tissue flat to the base of
a freezing well. This adhesive property of freezing steel makes it easier to
place tissues in precise position. "Precisely
block cryoembedding"(2) Freezing
tissue in a block of embedding medium prior to slicing it transforms tiny specimens into large ones, flimsy
soft tissues into firm easy to cut specimens, straightens out rubbery curled
tissues and makes torn and perforated tissues whole again.
placed in precise position on a small portion of lens paper wetted
with embedding medium are transferred on the paper to the well floor.
Allow precise flat embedding of the most delicate tissues or complex
arrangements of tissues. Great for Mohs Surgery.
