Tissue-Tek Polar is a successor of Cryo3 which has a new powerful system for sectioning of adipose tissue. Efficient cooling of the blade holder and microtome chuck, and excellent microtome rigidity allow for a variety of tissues, from lymph node through mammary gland, to be sectioned in an ideal temperature range. The polar provides a unique draft generator to minimize release of contaminated air to the outside of the chamber, in addition to the ozone disinfection cycle and vacuum debris removal system.
