Acrylic Coronal Brain Matrices for Rodents

Acrylic Coronal Brain Matrix for Mouse

These acrylic coronal rodent brain matrices aid in the dissection of discrete regions of a rodent brain or comparably sized organ. They allow the investigator to slice repeatable coronal sections of the sample, enabling precise blocking prior to microtome sectioning and the removal of small, reproducible brain regions (i.e. discrete terminal fields or nuclei) for biochemical analysis, such as the determination of neurotransmitter and metabolite concentrations. Individual brain areas may be stained, dissected or micropunched (using micron biopsy punches) from the slices formed.

  • Repeatable slices from 0.5 to 3.0 mm
  • Sizes for neonatal rat, mouse and adult rat
  • Acrylic, also available in stainless steel (other materials upon request)
  • Acrylic saggital matices also available
  • Custom sizes and shapes
  • Slices can be made with razor blades (included)

Please see the Specifications tab to compare coronal and sagittal options.

See the Specifications tab for detailed specifications for both sagittal and coronal acrylic matrices.

All matrices are designed for long-term use, and matrices of any given type are identical to insure reproducible sections. Channels are cut at precise intervals ranging from 0.50 mm to 3.00 mm and are 0.3 mm wide. Other species, sizes, and materials are available upon request. Please contact Technical Support for more information.
