Rodent 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.

Available Options:

Description

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
