Re: Sucrose Formalin

From:"A. Erickson" <>

We use sucrose formalin to cryoprotect perfused brain tisue prior to
sectioning on a sliding microtome.  Make the solution by dissolvinf
sucrose (not glucose ) in your regular lab formulation of neutral buffered
formalin.  30% = 30 grams sucrose, dissolved in NBF, then bring total 
volume up 100ml.  Andra Erickson,University of Washington, RPRC
