FD Rapid GolgiStain™ Kit (large) PK401 For up to 50 mouse brains Manual

Golgi-Cox impregnation1, 2 has been one of the most effective techniques for studying both the normal and abnormal morphology of neurons as well as glia. Using the Golgi technique, subtle morphological alterations in neuronal dendrites and dendritic spines have been discovered in the brains of animals treated with drugs as well as in the postmortem brains of patients with neurological diseases3, 4. However, the unreliability and the time-consuming process of Golgi staining have been major obstacles to the widespread application of this technique.

FD Rapid GolgiStain™ Kit is designed based on the principle of the methods described by Ramón- Moliner2, Glaser and Van der Loos5. This kit has not only dramatically improved and simplified the Golgi-Cox technique but has also proven to be extremely reliable and sensitive for demonstrating morphological details of neurons and glia, especially dendritic spines. The FD Rapid GolgiStain™ Kit has been tested extensively and widely used on the brains from several species of animals as well as on the specimens of postmortem human brains.
