Dear Sue,

Defiantly yes, it is much safer and more eco friendly. We supply a suitable dunking container with our Clin-RF as the specimens need to be contained to stop them floating in the 3M's fluid.

Best regards

Can you use the 3M freezing fluid in a histobath instead of isopentane?

Dear Bob,

I would just like to point out that the recommended freezing fluid for the Bright Clini-RF Rapid -80c tissue freezer is 3M's Novec HFE-7100 not 7000 as you state. 

Best regards

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 http://www.spscientific.com/Air-Stream-/-Baths-/-Chillers-/-Traps-/-Probes.aspx

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.
