|Description: The Leica EM PACT2 High Pressure Freezer is the first step in the preparation of samples for many subsequent techniques, allowing high quality freezing up to 200 um into the specimen. The Rapid Transfer System EM RTS allows an ease of sample preparation. Place your sample in the flat carrier held in the fork and simply push it into the instrument. The EM RTS does the rest. It takes the sample, locks it into the pod and shoots it into the Leica EM PACT2 where it is frozen - all in less than 5 seconds!
