Cryostat Phenomenon

From:Tom Johnson <>

I learned from one of my German colleagues to place a small tray of absolute
alcohol into the cryochamber a little while before you start sectioning.
This acts like a buffer for the static charge and should help eliminate the
problem.  All the feedback I have received so far has been positive for this
simple procedure.  No need for swearing, special magic or marketing schemes.
Anyone who tries this please give me feedback on your results.  Thank you!
