Zyagen offers high quality mouse placenta paraffin sections at different stages of pregnancy from E10 to E18. Pregnancy is precisely determined by observation of vaginal plug. Plug date is considered day one of gestation. Placentas of CD1 (ICR) mice are fixed in 4% paraformeldehyde or 10% neutral buffered formalin, embedded in paraffin blocks, and sectioned at a thickness of 5 microns. Sections are mounted on positively charged slides (2-3 sections per slide).
Paraffin sections are shipped in tightly closed slide boxes or slide mailers at room temperature and are good for one year if properly stored.
Applications: Paraffin sections are prepared in RNase-, protease-free environment and are ideal for immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization.
