It depends on what you are going to do after freezing. You don't have to fix
them, if you are going to cryosection them. You might want to freeze them in
tissueteck... Need more details to help you.

		 I have a few questions about freezing mouse embryos. Do you
have to fix the
		embryo before you freeze it? Or can we just freeze it in
Liquid Nitrogen
		cooled isopentane? If you have to fix the embryo's what kind
of fixative is
		best to use and for how long?

		Thank you,
