[Histonet] Re: Brain sections-rat

From:kotresh mattur

 Dear all,
            We are facing some problems in rat brain sectioning and staining. We are sectioning brain at 5-6 microns thickness and then we take sections at 37-40 centigrade after leaving for 1min. in water bath or till the sections are flattened. During staining at hydration step sections are lifting off. For this problem we tried to take the sections on histogrip coated slides which also did not help us at all. Whether there are any special delicate techniques in brain sectioning, staining? Regarding this problem can anybody help with their vast experience? Suggestions/advice from all are welcome.

 Thanks in advance
