The Stainless Steel Zivic Young Rat Brain Slicer Matrix with 1.0 mm CORONAL section slice intervals aids research scientists in the dissection of discrete regions of the young rat brain. With its anatomically proportioned dimensions and slice channels, this rat brain matrix allows an investigator or research scientist to consistently slice coronal sections of a rat brain, enabling precise blocking prior to microtome sectioning or the removal of small, reproducible 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.


- Slice intervals spaced 1.0mm apart

- Use this matrix to section the rat brain into CORONAL slices with thicknesses in increments of 1.0mm

- Designed to accommodate for unique anatomical features of the rat brain, including adjacent olfactory/spinal tissue

- Include a central sagittal slice channel, allowing the brain to be split into left and right hemispheres

- Use with fresh or preserved brain tissue

- Autoclavable and designed for long-term use

- Matrices of any given type are identical to insure reproducible sections

- Comes ready to use, with 10 single edge razor blades provided at no additional cost

- Made from high-grade stainless steel


- Dissection / Blocking of the rat brain into coronal sections (or left and right hemispheres)

- Sectioning the rat brain prior to or post staining with agents included TTC or X-Gal-stain

- Repeated isolation of brain regions for further analysis or slide preparation

- Tissue preparation
