We call those holders "chucks" or tissue stage. To my knowledge there are no plastic
or disposable chucks used in cryostats. Each cryostat has their own design that fit
their particular chuck holder. I do offer very high quality stainless steel chucks which
fit most Leica and Microm cryostats. If you have been away from cryotomy for a
while, my web site contains a tutorial on frozen section technique which you may
find helpful. I also offer an embedding system for frozen section which will allow you
to precisely embed tissues for clinical and research methods.
Let me know if can help you in any way.
