storage of frozen specimens

From:"Johnson, Teri"

Hi again all,

I'm looking for ideas regarding storage of frozen specimens.  I know everybody does things differently and am interested in what it is you do, what works well for you.  We store our tissues in a -80 degree C ultrafreezer.  What I'm currently doing works, but I think I'll tap into this resource to see if what you are doing is better.

I freeze my tissues in a cryomold.  Sometimes I keep them mounted on the cryostat chuck if I'm going to be cutting them again in the near future.

Thanks for your help!
