Sample preparation

For getting access for samples preparation  equipment you can contact:

  • Leica VT1000 M Vibratome: to make thick tissue sections. the vibratome is best suited to make tissue sections between 50 to 300 µm (and possibly thicker). The tissue needs to be fixed in formaldehyde or a similar fixative before cutting, and can be cut without freezing or embedding the tissue.  Contact Sonja Jacobsen: sjacobsen(at)
