Microdissection of more than 130 different brain nuclei is performed on frozen brains. These samples are approved for neurochemistry, neuroendocrine, molecular biology, proteomic and genomic studies. Short postmortem delay: most brains are removed from the skull and frozen two to six hours after death.
