The cryomold have been moved on the website: check under specification & accessories of the cryostats. I hate when they move things on websites but I guess they are employing the grocery store theory (move thing so customers will see other stuff to buy as they look for what they really need)


My experience with the square & rectangle ones, they are ok for about 1-2 uses with the paraffin, then the centers warp. We did freeze some of our case tissue to save for long term storage in the square ones with OTC but we didn't have to cut the tissues

I found an old box of Tissue Tek  4728 cryomolds in our Mohs lab.  They are round with a small tab on the side.  We like them so much better than the disposable embedding molds sold for paraffin embedding.  I have seen cryomolds that look like the same ones for paraffin but are they any thinner for quicker freezing?

1. Does anyone know where to get the round ones?    I do not see them on the Sakura website.
2. Do the square ones that look like our paraffin molds release easily?
