Question: Are tissues flash-frozen in liquid nitrogen compatible with Visium?
Answer: Tissues flash-frozen in liquid nitrogen experience uneven freezing which can result in tissue cracking. We recommend flash-freezing tissues using an isopentane and liquid nitrogen bath. Refer to our Visium Spatial Gene Expression Tissue Preparation Guide or our Visium CytAssist Spatial Gene Expression for FF Tissue Preparation Guide for additional details.
