Whole-Mount Slide Imaging in Traumatic Brain Injury Research
Application Note Jul 14, 2015
Whole-mount slide imaging enables innovative processes and outcomes for brain research. Because the TissueScope can fit slidesof up to 6x8”, an entire slice of the human brain can be scanned atonce, making a precise 3D reconstruction of the whole brainpossible. Unlike traditional microscopy, sections do not have to beexcluded, so a global image is more easily obtained. A procedurefor reconstructing the brain from histology slides involves thinlyslicing the brain along one axis. Although there are thousands ofslides to be scanned, the TissueScope images whole slides inminutes.
