Acrylic Coronal Brain Matrices for Rodents

Price on request

These acrylic coronal rodent brain matrices aid in the dissection of discrete regions of a rodent brain or comparably sized organ. They allow the investigator to slice repeatable coronal sections of the sample, 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 stained, dissected or micropunched (using micron biopsy punches) from the slices formed.

  • Repeatable slices from 0.5 to 3.0 mm
  • Sizes for neonatal rat, mouse and adult rat
  • Acrylic, also available in stainless steel (other materials upon request)
  • Acrylic sagittal matrices also available
  • Custom sizes and shapes
  • Slices can be made with razor blades (included)

Please see the Specifications tab to compare coronal and sagittal options.
