RE: Whole mouse snap freezing for frozen sections

In response to Gayle Callis's wonderful support for Leica cryostat's, I
would like to clarify some points.

Leica makes a CM 3050S cryomicrotome that can cut a whole mouse.  There is
a CM 3500,which is called a cryopolycut. This instrument can cut a whole
rat body. The last one is a CM 3600 and it is called a cryomacrocut. This
cryo unit can accommodate much larger specimens. This is the most expensive
of these units. I hope this information helps.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me at 800 248 0123 x7267 or
email me here at Leica.
