The Zivic Pig Brain Slicer Matrix with 5.0 mm sagittal section slice intervals aids research scientists in the dissection of discrete regions of the pig brain. With its anatomically proportioned dimensions and slice channels, this pig brain matrix allows an investigator or research scientist to consistently slice sagittal sections of a pig 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 5.0mm apart

- Use this matrix to section the pig brain into sagittal slices with thicknesses in increments of 5.0mm

- Designed to accommodate for unique anatomical features of the pig brain, including brain stem tissue

- Includes 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 aluminum


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

- Sectioning the pig 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
