Rat Brain Slicers & Matrices

Rat Brain Matrix
Zivic Rat Brain Slicers / Matrices aid in the dissection of discrete regions of the rat brain. The Zivic Rat Brain Slicer allows an investigator or research scientist to slice repeatable coronal or sagittal sections of a rat brain, enabling precise blocking prior to microtome sectioning and 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.

Choose the best rat brain slicer for your research:
  • Large Rat Brain Slicer: for rats weighing more than 375 grams
  • Adult Rat Brain Slicer: for rats weighing 175 - 375 grams
  • Young Rat Brain Slicer: for rats weighing 35 - 175 grams
  • Rat Pup Brain Slicer: for rats weighing 15 - 35 grams
  • Neonatal Rat Brain Slicer: for rats weighing up to 15 grams
  • Slice intervals range from 500 microns to 3.00mm
  • Available in Coronal or Sagittal orientation
  • All matrices include a central sagittal slice channel, allowing the brain to be split into left and right hemispheres
  • Each matrix designed with space for olfactory/spinal tissue
  • Designed for long-term use
  • Matrices of any given type are identical to insure reproducible sections
