High pressure freezer LEICA EM PACT2
The LEICA EM PACT2 serves to rapidly freeze delicate cellular structures without chemical fixation. High pressure freezing (HPF) is key for the study of intricate changes in fine structure or cellular dynamics.
The carriers of 1.5 mm diameter and 0.2 mm depth can be provided by the facility. After cryofixation, samples can be transfered to the LEICA AFS2 device to be infiltred by resin under cold conditions.
