Tissues Collected

Tissue samples are collected and stored either fixed or frozen. Brain sections are primarily frozen in isopentane/dry ice. Frozen tissue is stored at -85oC. Fixed tissues are stored in 10% formalin. Cells are stored at  -196oC.

All tissues listed may not be available for each case.
