Brain & Tissue Matrices
These high quality Brain Matrices are designed for freehand slicing of discrete regions of the brain. They allow slicing of either coronal or sagittal sections through the brain at intervals of 1mm and of 2mm for large brains. The all-metal design with a hard, durable chrome coating offers superior cooling properties. They may be heated, sterilized, chilled and scrubbed clean without damaging the surfaces. All Brain Matrices of the same animal are identical to give reproducible sections.
They are ideal for precise and reproducible blocking of living or fixed brain tissue in:
Anatomy: Precise blocking of the brain prior to microtome sectioning;
Neurophysiology: Reproducible blocking of the brain prior to sectioning; and
Biochemical Pharmacology: Reproducible removal of small brain regions for biochemical analysis. Below are selected product examples linked to ordering information:
These Matrices may be heated, sterilized, chilled and scrubbed clean without damaging the surfaces. Precise, reproducible blocking of living or fixed brain tissue.
Immediate soaking in liquid cleaner is advisable after use.
For Cleaning Brain Matrices, we recommend our Ultrasonic Cleaners.
To keep tissue cool and viable, chill matrices before use.
