Sakura Finetek collaborated with Mohs technicians across the United States to design a cryostat for laboratories cutting skin specimens using Mohs surgery technique. This unique cryostat was designed to decrease the time to get complete sections, and in parallel to preserve valuable tissue.
The Tissue-Tek® Cryo3® Flex Cryostat, Mohs produces superior sections from 1 to 99 microns using a temperature-controlled blade holder and a Winged Chuck to accurately align the block face to the blade, reducing operator's trimming time and preserving specimens. The sturdy chuck retains its position when locked and unlocked, eliminating any time and effort spent realigning the cutting angle.
You can now leverage the newly developed Anti-Roll Rake that was designed to best mimic the preferred and widely accepted "Brush Technique" to prevent sections from rolling, which in addition, reduces the learning curve of new users making them proficient faster.
For the first time in the history of cryotomy, Sakura Finetek successfully integrated its advanced remote diagnostics technology platform, Tissue-Tek® iSupport™, into the hardware and software of the Cryo3 Flex Cryostat product line. The plug-and-play connection opens communication through a secure remote service to Sakura Finetek's professional technical support team, minimizing response time through fast reaction to instrument alerts, and maximizing user uptime.
A color touch LCD screen provides a visual display of critical sectioning information such as current chamber temperature, section thickness, and trimming thickness. The Cryobar® offers 12 positions, allowing operators to use the Cryomold® method or direct method at the same time. The Cryo+™ area of the Cryobar freezes to -50◦C, within 5 minutes after activation.
The motorized advance and retract keys allows smooth, precise orientation of the Winged Chuck to the Blade Holder. The Blade Holder accommodates Accu-Edge® high and low-profile disposable blades.
