Mouse pancreas dissection. Researcher dissecting a mouse pancreas in a cryostat. A cryostat is a refrigerated chamber kept at sub-zero temperatures. It is used when cutting thin sections of potentially hazardous tissues. Keeping the tissue to be cut frozen allows very thin slices to be cut and helps prevent any micro- organisms present from leaving the tissue.
