FineFIX Module

The high quality of Milestone frozen sections can only be achieved by freezing the specimens with PrestoCHILL and by processing the slides with FineFIX prior to staining.

  • The FineFIX Module consists of a heated metal vessel in which the FineFIX solution is kept within at 40°C.
  • Frozen section slides are immersed in the solution for 15-60 seconds to simultaneously carry out the specimen’s fixation, dehydration and lipids extraction.
  • Following this pre-step, the specimens are stained in agreement with the user’s standard protocols.

Milestone Presto PRO

Miletsone’s Presto PRO is an cutting-edge benchtop processor/stainer for high-quality frozen sections. It boasts a standardized approach to processing the slide with FineFIX, a patented Milestone solution followed by fully automated staining protocols.

Now it is possible to produce frozen sections with a permanent-like quality by combining the artifact-free freezing of tissues of the PrestoCHILL unit with the exceptional features of the all-new PRESTO PRO processing/staining unit.

Milestone Cryoembedding Compound

Milestone Cryoembedding Compound (MCC) is a proprietary formulation of glycols and resins developed specifically for optimal support during cryotomy of dissected tissues down to -40°C.

MCC does not leave residue on the slides, eliminating non-specific background staining. Additionally, MCC is water soluble and will not dull microtome knives.
