I have your information on the thermal block below.

The thermal block facilitates the removal of the frozen specimen from the
specimen disc. The thermal block is kept outside the cryostat at room
temperature and is placed in the cryochamber only for specimen removal.

Place the cap on the required side so that the appropriate location hole
for the specimen disc is available. Insert the shaft of the disc in the
location hole. After about 20 secs the frozen specimen can be removed from
the disc with forceps. After removing the specimen, take the thermal block
out of the cryochamber.

If you have questions just give me a call.

Does anyone use the Leica Thermal Block? How does it work? Do you
need to prewarm it? I was told to leave it in the cryostat but that
doesn't work as it gets as cold as the chucks ... ?
