    I have a few questions if that’s OK.

    Have you found the results satisfactory? Or is it too early to tell? How did the process compare to freezing specimens?

    Cheers : )

      I shall pass your question on to our conservators for their expert opinion. We helped with preparing and loading the specimens into the van, but haven’t really been involved post-heating.
