Terri Bishop at SPScientific sent me an e-mail about HistoChill, a
frozen section freezing bath that replaces the discontinued HistoBath.
Terri didn't feel it was appropriate for a vendor to post this
directly on HistoNet, so I am. You can contact Terri Bishop at
Terri.Bishop <@t> SPScientific.com

HistoChill has been available for about a year. You can see the brochure at

I'm pleased that they are specifically recommending using 3M's
non-flammable perfluorocarbon HFE-7000 coolant, and not isopentane or
acetone. (I feel like I've struck a blow for lab safety!)

As has been noted on HistoNet before, Hacker Instruments offers Alan
Bright's Clini-RF, a competing product.

I have no commercial connection with any of the companies I've
mentioned, and I have no personal experience with either instrument.
