HistoChill™ Tissue Freezing Bath

The HistoChill™ low temperature bath is mechanically refrigerated with an ultimate low temperature of -80°C. Because it’s mechanically refrigerated there’s no need for storing, crushing and handling hazardous and expensive dry ice. It’s used for the rapid freezing of tissue samples in Histology and Pathology Labs as well as other disciplines. Using a liquid medium, the HistoChill rapidly and thoroughly freezes samples minimizing ice crystal formation compared with the slow freezing rates encountered in a cryotome.

The HistoChill™ is available in two configurations: the basic HistoChill for general freezing applications and the advanced model with built in magnetic stirrer and temperature control for more stringent, tissue specific or R&D applications. The advanced model includes digital set point and temperature indication.
