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.
Precise blocking of the brain prior to microtome sectioning.
Reproducible blocking of the brain prior to vibratome sectioning.
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
