How do I keep the solution cold during slicing?

When cutting with the Compresstome®, the sections fall into a buffer tray as they are free floating. There are several ways to keep the solution cold during cutting, including:

  • Place ice cubes directly in the buffer tray, as the vibrations of the blade holder will repel them from the sections being cut.
  • Place an ice pack underneath the buffer tray, as there is some space between the bottom of the buffer tray and the top of the base unit.
  • Replace your standard, polycarbonate buffer tray by purchasing one of our double wall buffer trays, which include a second wall for placing crushed/ice to keep your solution cold throughout the cutting process.
