Tissue MatricesTissue Matricesarrow11Tissue Matrices; (TM)

The Tissue Matrix is designed to aid the basic research scientist in the free-hand dissection of a wide variety of different tissues and repeatedly slice fresh tissue at intervals as small as 1mm. The TM's are constructed from high grade aluminum to allow for rapid temperature equilibration, ease of cleaning or sterilization and withstand the rigors of daily use.

Features:

  • Channels at 1mm intervals
  • Channel width is 0.3mm
  • Removable end caps
  • Available in 3 basic configurations

Applications:

Biochemical Pharmacology: The reproducible removal of small regions for biochemical analysis, such as the determination of drug and metabolite concentrations. Individual tissues may be either dissected or micropunched from slices formed.

  • Anatomy: Precise blocking of tissue prior to microtome sectioning
  • Physiology: Reproducible blocking prior to vibratome sectioning enzymatic dispersion

Overall Measurements: 90mm L x 36mm W x 37mm H

Rodent Brain MatricesRodent Brain Matricesarrow11Rodent Brain Matrices; (RBM)

RBM are designed for similar purposes as the above TM but only for rodent brains. It allows the investigator to slice either coronal (perpendicular to center line) or sagittal (parallel to center line) sections through the brain at intervals as small as 1mm. All RBM's are identical and durable to insure reproducible sections in the day-to-day, year-to-year, or on a between laboratory basis.

Applications:

Biochemical Pharmacology

The reproducible removal of small 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 either dissected or micropunched from the slices formed.

Anatomy

Precise blocking of the brain prior to microtome sectioning.

Neurophysiology

Reproducible blocking of the brain prior to vibratome sectioning.

Technical Data:

The RBM's are constructed from high grade zinc to allow for rapid temperature equilibration, easy cleaning, and sterilization. The matrices are designed to accommodate the brains of rodents placed ventral side up. The channels are precisely cut at 1mm intervals and 0.3mm wide.

Overall Measurements: 2.75" x 2.75" x 1.5"H

mouse branin blockTissue Freezing Mediumarrow11Brain Blocker One™

A Perfect Cryosectioning Method – Brain Blocker One™ with these features:

  • Easily reproducible alignment in atlas planes
  • Section one or multiple brains with each knife pass
  • Time saving in Tissue sectioning
  • Time saving in Microscope analysis

Brain Blocker One is a set of gel blocks, left and right half, with an internal cavity cast originally an actual mouse brain. Drop a fresh or fixed brain in to displace the liquid in the one half cavity, add another half on top and the brain is now fully encased, as if it had been embedded. The brain cavity is in sterotaxic orientation, top surface of the gel parallel to skull flat. The gel expands slowly with hydration, and the cavity accommodates different brain sizes simply by the length of the presoak time, 1 to 4 hours for fresh adult brain, less for fixed or young brain, more for aged brain.

The entire block can be frozen and sectioned. The cryostat pedestal need never be readjusted from parallel to the blade plane of motion, and every brain will come out sectioned in the same plane as the atlas.

Multi-blocks can be frozen and mounted on the same pedestal together. Each pass of the cryostat knife, produces the same thickness sections, same orientation from every brain are mounted on that pedestal. Up to 24 brains can be sectioned with each pass of the knife using the whole body cryostat and Macro Tape Transfer system.

Gels will come in packages of 12 pairs, slightly dehydrated. Soak in water, saline, or buffer to fit the brains
