Dear Surita:
  As standard procedure for direct immunofluorescence I always used distilled water to do skin frozen sections.
  The cryostat has to be at least at -20║C and you addd a large drop, place the specimen inside it and keep building more ice around it as it freezes.
  Nothing to wash afterwards!

Yes use water to attach your tissue, this was the main method used when
we first started manufacturing cryostats in the 50's.

Hi There,

Would anyone happen to know if there is a way to attach frozen tissue to
cryostat chucks without using OCT media or super glue? 

Also, what are the 86% non-reactive ingredients in Tissue Tek OCT media?
