Cryostat for storing fish samples at -20 degrees C
We are a small Food Chemistry Laboratory functioning within the Seychelles Bureau of Standards. We wish to purchase a cryostat for the purpose of storing fish samples at *-20ºC* prior to the analysis of Histamine in the tissue of Tuna by HPLC. As per the EU requirement, fishery products should be tested using the HPLC … Continue reading Cryostat for storing fish samples at -20 degrees C
Vendors for cryopreserved rat arteries
My department is starting up a microsurgery training lab as an adjunct to our resident curriculum. Instead of using live rats, we want to pursue the option of using cryopreserved rat arteries. I have been unsuccessful in finding animal/rodent vendors who deal in this. I basically found a lot of information on cryopreserved rat embryo … Continue reading Vendors for cryopreserved rat arteries

LN2 flow in cryotherapy device
I’m working on a cooler device that will be pretty similar to the devices commonly used in cryotherapy for cooling skin. Meaning that my device will use liquid nitrogen provided to the handle so the liquid gas will be expanded in the handle instead of low temperature, gaseous nitrogen through the application pipe. Everything seems … Continue reading LN2 flow in cryotherapy device
Colleges that offer cryogenic studies
Would you happen to know of any colleges in the US that offer cryogenics as a major? If not, should I major in something like biology or physics before, then branch off to the field of cryogenics? Any information that you could give me would be greatly appreciated, considering this is what I want to … Continue reading Colleges that offer cryogenic studies
