Rapid GolgiStain Kit
Golgi-Cox impregnation has been one of the most effective techniques for studying both the normal and abnormal morphology of neurons as well as glia (Ref.1,2). Using Golgi impregnation technique, neuroscientists are able to investigate subtle morphological alterations in dendrites and spines in the brains of animals treated with drugs as well as in the postmortem brains of patients with neurological diseases (Ref.3,4). However, the low yields of stained cells and time-consuming process of the Golgi staining method have been the major obstacles to a variety of its applications to neuropathological assessments.
FD Rapid GolgiStain Kit is designed based on the principle of the methods described by Ramon-Moliner (Ref.2), Glaser and Van der Loos (Ref.5). Not only has this Kit been shown to dramatically optimize and simplify the Golgi impregnation procedure, but it has also been proven as one of the most extremely reliable and sensitive methods for visualizing morphological details of neurons (Ref.6,7).
One of the advantages of this Rapid GolgiStain Kit is to generate a high yield of Golgi-impregnated cells in multiple regions of the brains, which will allow for morphological assessments of both within- and between structures of the brains.
