FS8500 Freeze Substitution Machine
The FS-8500 Freeze Substitution System is designed with safety & operator convenience in mind. With a large volume, easy access, top loading, temperature controlled substitution chamber samples are slowly and gently dehydrated in a solvent solution, following which they are embedded in resin blocks for room temperature sectioning.
Cryofixed samples, typically stored in LN2, are transferred into the FS-8500 where the substitution solvent is pre-programmed to a temperature below that where secondary ice crystal growth can occur.
Computer controlled for reliable and repeatable results.
