Stainless Steel Sagittal Brain Matrices for Rodents

Stainless Steel Brain Matrices for Small Rodents

These stainless steel 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 sagittal 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.

These stainless steel 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 sagittal 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.

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.
