RE: [Histonet] HistoBath

From:"Ingles Claire"

I work in a Mohs clinic (frozen skins) we love our liquid nitrogen guns. We have a large tank to store it, and fill the guns every morning. I like them alot better than the isopentane bath we used to use. Particularly when processing fatty specimens. We freeze our tissue in the cryostat initially, then use the cryogun when there are areas that need to be colder to section. The advantage is that you can get very specific in the area you want to freeze, so the OCT, etc. won't get so cold it shatters, like wise with the non-fat elements of the tissue section. Liquid Nitrogen is also alot safer than isopentane in the lab. If you are interested in these, let me know, I'll get you more detailed info.

Hi everyone,
 Our isopentane bath (Histo Bath) that we use to freeze our frozen
section blocks has finally stopped working and cannot be repaired.  We
tried to order a replacement unit only to find out that they no longer
make it !!!  The company also did not have another option.  Does anyone
know where we can get something like this?  Any help would be greatly
