Cryosectioning 101 for Research Q&A

John Stock from Leica Biosystems gave a webinar that provided a comprehensive guide on how to achieve better cryosectioning outcomes. He covered the installation and setup of the instrument, sample tissue preparation, freezing of the tissue and how to get better tissue sections.

The permanent attention to detail and many hours in front of the cryostat can be exhausting for the user, and customers had their own questions for John at the end of the webinar, and we have provided those questions and export answers for you here!

Questions included advice on tissue tearing, keeping sample at low temperature when working and preference for high, or low-profile blades.

We’ve compiled them all into an easy to navigate format that you can access right now.
