Ambion s LCM Staining Kit

Premium

Ambion has recently introduced the LCM staining kit.

The kit can be used to stain frozen tissue sections to facilitate identification of target cells for laser capture microdissection, while minimizing RNA degradation, Ambion said. Specifically, the kit incorporates a novel staining procedure developed by the company that avoids exposing tissue sections to pure water.

Details about the kit can be found at http://www.ambion.com/catalog/CatNum.php?1935.
