Q: Can I chill the buffer tank during sectioning?
A: Yes, you can. You can use an icy buffer for slicing tissues, or place ice or ice packs around the buffer tray to keep the entire tray cold.
Q: Is the buffer tank removable?
A: At this time, the buffer tank is not removable. But we are actively designing a new model with removable buffer tanks!
Q: What glue should I use for stabilizing the tissue I want to cut?
A: We highly recommend using the Instant Krazy Glue that is commonly used in labs. The glue comes in a red/green vial with a control tip applicator. It is best to avoid gel-like glues because the consistency of those products could damage the tissue during the glueing process.
