Leica EM AFS

High pressure freezing is key for the study of intricate changes in fine structure or cellular dynamics.

                • Cryo-immobilize your aqueous samples under high pressure with a unique freezing principle and uncover secrets of the cellular process.
                • Capture and resolve highly dynamic processes at the nanometer scale with millisecond precision.

The EM ICE solution uses a unique, alcohol-free freezing principle to allow a superior cryo-fixation of the specimen enabling better quality results to be obtained:

No alcohol in the chamber leads to a faster pressure increase and immediate cooling of the specimen

      • No alcohol residue on the carrier or the specimen
      • Precisely define the timing for light and electrical stimulation
