Zyagen offer coronal paraffin sections of 4 rat spinal cord regions/areas (cervical, thoracic, lumber, & sacral). Spinal cords of Sprague Dawley rats are fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin, processed for paraffin embedding, sectioned in coronal orientation at a thickness of 5 microns, and sections mounted on positively charged slides. Each slide contains 2-3 sections. Paraffin sections are shipped in tightly closed slide boxes or slide mailers at room temperature.
Spinal cord coronal paraffin sections of rats perifused with 4% paraformeldehyde are also available upon request. Spinal cord paraffin sections are made under RNase- and protease-free conditions and are ideal for immunohistocheemistry and in situ hybridization.
