Solving the Challenges of Mature Brain Slicing

Difficulties of Slicing Older Animal Brains Younger rodent brains are much softer and easier to slice because these brains are not heavily myelinated. With older rodent brains, the amount of myelination makes tissue slicing difficult. Together with labs at the Allen Institute, we have developed the Compresstome to be successful at cutting brains from mature […]
