arrow13Tissue, Brain, Heart, and Spinal Cord Matrices

Product SheetTissue MatricesTissue Matricesarrow11Tissue Matrices (TM)

Tissue Matrices are 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 1 mm. Tissue Matrices 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

  • Channel spacing at 1 or 2 mm intervals
  • Channel width is 0.3 mm
  • 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: 90 mm L x 36 mm W x 37 mm H

Product SheetTDSRodent Brain MatricesRodent Brain MatricesPiglet Brain Matricesarrow11Rodent Brain Matrices (RBM)

Rodent Brain Matrices are designed for similar purposes as the above Tissue Matrices, but only for rodent brains. They allow 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 Rodent Brain Matrices are identical and durable to ensure 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

Rodent Brain Matrices 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
