Re: [Histonet] Cryojane/gentle jane

From:Rocan

Steven,
We use both and have had a very good experience with the items.  The  
freezing thing is excellent for our purposes and works well.  Their  
UV curable mounting media is also quite nice in our hands. The  
Cryojane is something you need to develop a good technique since  
sometimes the tape can retain some of the section.  It is a little  
tricky. In my opinion, the Cryojane is not for routine use but for  
specific applications.  We do mouse skin wounds and it has been  
invaluable for us.  However, when we cut other organs we do not need  
it or use it.  The supplies are expensive ($1 per slide) and you are  
always dependent on them for the supplies.   Also, very importantly,   
their customer service can be on the "defensive" side, so when you  
have a problem with their products do not expect them to think that  
the customer is always right.  I hope this information helps you.
