Amyloid plaques can be detected on free-floating sections (e.g. those cut with a cryostat or Vibratome®using FD NeuroSilver™ Kit (cf. Products, Cat. #PK301), or on sections that have previously been mounted on slides (e.g. paraffin sections) with Hirano-Zimmerman Method¹.

  • SS101-1    Detection of amyloid plaques on free-floating sections with FD NeuroSilver™ Kit, cf. photo samples.

This service includes tissue preparation, sectioning, silver-staining, mounting, coverslipping and labeling the slides. As a result, your will receive up to 40 silver-stained sections per brain or per tissue block ready for microscopic observations. A set of Nissl (or H&E) stained sections adjacent to those used for silver-staining can also be provided at a low cost.

  • SS101-2   Detection of amyloid plaques on paraffin sections with Hirano Zimmerman Method¹

This service includes section pretreatment, silver-staining, coverslipping and labeling the slides. As a result, your will receive up to 40 silver-stained sections per brain or per tissue block ready for microscopic observations. A set of Nissl (or H&E) stained sections adjacent to those used for silver-staining can also be provided at a low cost.
