Tissue preparation & immunogold labeling with 1 primary antibody on sections mounted on slides
This service includes tissue preparation, sectioning, immunolabeling, coverslipping and labeling the slides. As a result, you will receive up to 60 immunolabeled sections per brain or per tissue block ready for microscopic observations.
Procedure: Following cryoprotection, tissue will be rapidly frozen in isopentane pre-cooled to -70°C. The frozen tissue will then be cut on a cryostat and mounted on gelatin-coated microscope slides (cf. Products, Cat. #PO101). Subsequently, sections cut from various levels (the levels of your choice) will be processed on slides for immunostaining with 1 specific antibody according to immunogold labeling technique¹.
