The stand-alone Gentle Jane® Snap Freezer is portable (10 lbs, 12"x12"x12") and enables the user to snap-freeze tissue in 8-10 seconds. The Heat Extractor, chilled in a refrigerant (i.e. liquid nitrogen), is placed on the Gentle Jane device and drops at a controlled rate, snap-freezing the tissue and embedding medium. Frozen blocks can be stored inside the SAGJ chamber for up to two hours.
