[Histonet] Flash freezing tissue for transport to be cryostat sectioned at a later time

From:"Wilson, Carol"

Hi all, How would anyone out there suggest freezing various pieces of
cat tissue to be transported to another laboratory on dry ice for
cryostat sectioning when it gets to its destination?  We don't have a
cryostat or chucks on site, liquid nitrogen available.  We need to be
able to keep identity of each piece.  Suggestions quick please as the
necropsy team wants to stuff pieces of tissue into cryo vials and the
pieces are way to big to be stuffed and will certainly end up crushed.
