Preparing frozen sections of mouse eyeballs is difficult, especially if you 
would like to retain the morphology of the structures of interest.

We have been successful using the CryoJane Tape-Transfer system. Please 
visit the Instrumedics' web site for the details on the CryoJane method.

If you have any questions please contact us.

Subject: [Histonet] Cryosectioning mouse Eyeball

I have a couple of Researchers here who are interested in cryosectioning
mouse eyeballs to look at the corneas.  I have given them a few hints
(colder temperatures, cutting quickly and evenly, etc.) but they are
having variable results.  I was wondering if anyone has any further
hints.  Is there some sort of freezing media that someone would
recommend?  We are using Tissue-Tek OCT.  Thanks,
