Tape Transfer System
The CryoJane Tape-Transfer System for Cryosectioning makes it easy to produce high-quality frozen sections of difficult tissues. The CryoJane uses adhesive coated slides and adhesive tapes to capture sections instead of using an anti-roll plate or brush. The Leica CryoJane is adaptable to virtually all cryostats on the market.
The system achieves frozen sections of paraffin-quality as thin as two microns. The sections are wrinkle-free, uncompressed, fully intact and bonded to the microscope slide. A strip of tape is affixed to the trimmed tissue block and a section is then cut onto the tape. The tape with the section is placed on a pre-coated adhesive slide.
