Re: [Histonet] cryostats with curling sections

From:Phillip Huff

What is the point of buying a new cryostat? If you are simply having problems with the sections curling, but everything else is fine and you are getting sections cutting correctly, check out the CryoJane Tape transfer system (
We use it for all types of cryosections and it works wonderfully. Once you use it, you won't want to go back to cutting sections any other way. I would recommend to contact the company and see if there is someone in your area that has the system in a cryostat for you to try. The limitation of the system is that you have to have it installed in the cryostat. 
Please note: I do not work for this company and will not receive any benefit other than knowing your problem is solved.

I am the person who months ago sent out the cry for help concerning 
sections curling in the cryostat.
I was supposed to get back to you on what solved the problem. I wish I 
could tell you, but the answer is that nothing has worked.
Our tissue cuts fine on another cryostat. The owner of the company has 
apparently dismissed the issue and has not done anything about it, 
although they did send their technician to try and help. After checking 
everything out, she was at a complete loss. So now we have no choice but 
to invest another large sum of money in a new cryostat.

Soooo, now I would like input from all of you as to which cryostat you 
believe to be the best, and if you are planning to tell me it's Hacker 
Bright, don't bother.
The Zeiss Microm cuts well, but the interior is too dark.
Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all in advance,
