Randomly chosen females at PND 20, 28, 35, and 56 (1 per litter) and 3, 8, and 14 months (mostly 1, but sometimes 2 per litter) were weighed and euthanized by swift decapitation to obtain trunk blood for serum analysis and mammary glands for RNA, whole mount, and/or histopathological analysis.
The new funding will be used to expand the company's commercial operations and to develop cutting edge bio-imaging services for drug discovery in the fields of advanced 3D in vitro assays, digital pathology and whole mount tissue imaging.
The latter is also called large format histology (LFH) or whole mount sections.
For adult Amphistomes and their eggs, the following measurements were taken for whole mount and sagittal section (Fig.
Representative confocal images of whole mount fluorescent immunolabeling of cochlea injected at P0 to illustrate the basal (a), middle (b), and apical turns (c), as compared to the contralateral uninjected middle turn of cochlea (d).
analyzed the characteristics of cone cells degeneration using immunocytochemical analysis of whole mount retina sections, which are widely used to identify retinal photoreceptor cells, bipolar cells, horizontal cells, amacrine cells, Muller cells, and retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE) in mice and other mammals [23, 25, 26].
Although Sihler's staining, with more strengths, is a whole mount nerve staining technique and the only method available for mapping the entire intramuscular nerve, studies of the intramuscular correlation of the vascular and neural patterns, especially demonstrated in the same whole mount human muscle by different colors, is still lacking in the literature.
There were solid performances down the whole Mount order as they posted 226-7, with Mahmad Makda leading the way on 45, Hasan Patel 36, Anees Rawat 25 and Fakir Laher, who scored an unbeaten century the week before, 27.
The authors demonstrate an overall low margin positive rate assessed by whole mount sections at pathology, with 14% positive in the anterograde group versus 18% with the routinely performed open procedure.
