Background

  • In neurochemical studies of the brain, it is important to accurately measure neurochemical events in vivo.
  • Conventional tissue fixation methods make it difficult to take accurate neurochemical measurements in the brain because of the rapid post-mortem changes that occur in the concentrations of metabolites and neurotransmitters.
  • By deactivating brain enzymes in less than 1 second, the system dramatically reduces undesired post-mortem modifications in the biochemical composition of the brain.
  • Commonly used prior to analysis of:
    • Phosphorylated proteins
    • Acetylcholine, Serotonin, Endorphins
    • Prostaglandins, Catecholamines
    • C-AMP, C-GMP, GABA, DOPA

Incredibly fast, very effective, unrivalled method

  • Patented applicators focus microwaves on the target area.
  • Powerful 5kW system with instrument control through the touch panel display for easy usability 
  • CE certified and designed to be very safe.
  • Efficient, eco-friendly air cooling (no circulating water is required).
  • Switching power supply to comply with line voltage fluctuation (380-440 V, 20 amp).
  • Animal holders available for various sized mice and rats.
