[Histonet] cryostat block holders

From:"Stephen Peters M.D."

Hi Kim,
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.
