Rodent Brain Slicers & Matrices

Rodent Brain Slicers
Zivic Rodent Brain Slicer Matrices enable the precise sectioning / blocking of rodent brains (rat brains, mouse brains, gerbil brains, etc.). Each rodent brain slicer matrix is designed with anatomically proportioned cavity dimensions and slice channels spaced at precise intervals, thereby allowing an investigator or research scientist to consistently slice coronal or sagittal sections of a rodent brain. Zivic Rodent Brain Slicer Matrices enable 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 micro-punched from the slices formed. Each matrix is made of high quality, polished acrylic or stainless steel, and is available in two orientations: coronal (slice channels cut perpendicular to the long axis of the brain) and sagittal (slice channels cut parallel to the long axis of the brain). Zivic Brain Slicer Matrices have been the industry standard for more than 25 years.

- Used to create coronal or sagittal slices or sections of the rodent brain, with slice widths as narrow as 500 microns

- Slice Intervals from 500 microns (.500mm) to 3mm

- Coronal and Sagittal Orientations Available

- Standard Slicer Matrices for the following species or brain-types:

- Mouse - Rat - Neo-natal Rat - Gerbil - Custized Matrix

- Made of Stainless Steel or Cast Acrylic

- All matrices have a center-sagittal slice channel, which allows the brain to be split into hemispheres

- Capable of accomodating olfactory tissue and brain stem

- Designed for long-term use
