RE: Cryostat static


A simple way to solve the problem of static is to purchase an Anti static brush, we can supply these through our distributor network if you have a problem locating them. They are cheap and work, I have also tested them on a static charge voltmeter and the brush has dissolved a large voltage static charge instantly.

Subject: Cryostat static

Our pathology group has a LEICA CM1850 cryostat, My question to the histonet
is......Does anyone experience static electricity when trying to pick up
sections?  When we try to pick up the sections they will fly up to the slide
or off on their own.  We would like to know how to remedy this if there is
any. Thanks for your help
