"High-pressure-freezing for sample preparation of biological samples. The EM ICE wokrs fine, it is designed to be used for mass production. However, the price is high, including consumables. Service is OK."

High-pressure freezing is key for the study of intricate changes in fine structure or cellular dynamics

Currently cryo-fixation is the only way to fix cellular constituents without introducing significant structural alterations. With the Leica EM ICE, cryo-immobilize your aqueous samples under high pressure with a unique freezing principle and uncover secrets of the cellular process.

The EM ICE solution uses a unique, alcohol-free freezing principle to allow a superior cryo-fixation of the specimen enabling better quality results to be obtained: 

  • No alcohol in the chamber leads to a faster pressure increase and immediate cooling of the specimen 
  • No alcohol residue on the carrier or the specimen 
  • Precisely define the timing for light and electrical stimulation
  • Capture and resolve highly dynamic processes at the nanometer scale with millisecond precision.

The EM ICE solution, combining superior high pressure freezing with the possibility of light and electrical stimulation, is the platform for your discoveries.
