High Pressure Freezer and Rapid Transfer System

Company: Leica Microsystems
Model: EM PACT2 and EM RTS

The high-pressure freezer is used to prepare biological samples by cryo-fixation (samples up to 200µm in thickness).

  • Live cell carrier is available for cell cultures. Cells can be first examined with a light microscope and then rapidly frozen (in only five seconds) with the EM PACT2-EM RTS.
  • A microbiopsy system is available for rapid transfer of tissue into the EMPACT2.
  • The EM PACT2 can be easily transported.
  • Frozen samples can be stored at the Neurophotonics Centre in the cryo-biological storage system.
