This marking pen has been designed to provide a thin film-like barrier when a circle is drawn around the specimen on a slide. This barrier creates the proper surface tension to hold an antibody solution within the target area on the slide. The barrier formulation is insoluble in alcohol and acetone, but can be removed by xylene after the staining procedure is completed.
The Mini PAP Pen is especially useful when working with multiple sections on a single slide because its tip is smaller than the PAP pen. Each pen can be used to draw about 400 circles.
Our kit is designed for staining myelin/myelinated axons and Nissil substance on formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue as well as frozen tissue. Our kit is used for identifying the basic neuronal structure in brain or spinal cord sections, and contains a Cresyl Echt Violet counterstain. Using our protocol and the modified formulation, myelinated tissue can be stained in as little as 30 minutes.
