Sucrose as a cryoprotectant
Hi, all histonetters
What is the rationale for using sucrose as a
cryoprotectant. For cryostat sectioning of rat brain
we use graded concentrations of sucrose (15%--> 20-->
30%) for cryoprotection. What is the advantage of
graded concentrations as opposed to immersing the
tissue directly in sucrose.
Hope it merits an answer.
