Protocols to Support Your Experiments & Research

Published on October 25, 2021

What Precisionary Instruments Provides

At Precisionary Instruments, we understand that changing processes can seem unlikely favorable, or even nerve-wracking. However, our Scientific team has developed many protocols for sectioning an array of tissue types with the Compresstome® vibratome. Find protocols under the “Support” tab on our website or go here.

We provide:

  • Fixed AND fresh brain tissue
  • Brainstem tissue
  • Gastrointestinal tissue
  • Heart tissue
  • Liver tissue
  • Lung tissue
  • Reproductive tissue
  • Skin tissue
  • Tumor tissue
  • …and more!

Read our scientific protocols to learn how to prepare your tissue for use with the Compresstome®.

How are Protocols Helpful?

Protocols help save you describing time when the new colleague asks how to use a machine, or what the process is prior to using it. Not only do protocols lay out the steps, they do so in a manner that will produce the best results, results that are consistent for whoever is reading them. Protocols are also helpful for those who are used to doing a process a certain way, for a particular piece of equipment. When a new user, for example, is hesitant about the process of using the Compresstome® vibratome, we have the solution!

The Importance of Protocols

Protocols are widely used in many industries, especially the scientific community, to provide a “laboratory method” so that everyone in the same lab, group, and team will replicate the same result of a process successfully. With written protocols, everyone working on the same experiment or machine will produce consistent, quality results by following the guidelines protocols were designed for. At Precisionary Instruments, we provide written protocols based on animal models, organ systems, and experiments to support research.

“Our goal is to develop and apply new ultrafast laser scanning multimodal imaging and spectroscopic technologies, such as stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), second harmonic generation (SHG), and multiphoton fluorescence (MPF) microscopy, for visualizing molecular composition and metabolic dynamics in situ at subcellular resolution to study aging and diseases,” explains Professor Lingyan Shi. The Laboratory of Optical Bioimaging and Spectroscopy, led by Dr. Shi, is at the forefront of this groundbreaking research.
