Subject: [Histonet] Re: Brain sections-rat
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
