Question: Do I need to decontaminate the cryostat between different tissue types?
Answer: If you are sectioning different types of tissues, we recommend changing blades between each tissue block and allowing the blade to come to set temperature before sectioning. Also, employing the use of cryostat brushes to clean-up the sectioning area before proceeding to the next tissue block. For general cryostat maintenance before and after sectioning sessions, we recommend wiping down the inside of the cryostat and brushes with 100% ethanol.
