Leica Electron Microscope PACT2 High-Pressure Freezer
The HPF equipped with RTS allows ultra-rapid freezing of specimens. High-pressure freezing is superior to chemical fixation to preserve the native structure of cells and molecules. Antigenic sites in specimens are better preserved with HPF, opening greater possibilities for localization of molecules of interest within cells. Also available is a Leica Microbiopsy Transfer System (not shown), which provides the means for rapidly collecting microbiopsy specimens.
