The Cryolizer and specimen chamber provide a portable, convenient, and less-expensive alternative to a chill table. Originally designed for study of fruit fly cultures, items work equally well for mosquitoes or other insects studied live under magnification while immobilized by cold temperatures.

The system uses a polypropylene Cryolizer, 3-1/2" (9 cm) in diameter, with cold retention medium. The clear styrene chamber is 2-3/8" (6 cm) in diameter, 9/16" (1.5 cm) high. They have loose-fitting lids.  The Cryolizers are sold in sets so that one can be freezing while the other is being used

To use the system: Place the Cryolizer in a freezer until it reaches a temperature of about -18C or 0F. Then place a chamber (petri dish) containing specimens on the white surface of the chilled Cryolizer for examination. The Cryolizer will work well for about 1 hour and then need re-chilling. For first use, it is best to leave Cryolizers in freezer overnight. Re-cooling takes one to two hours.
