Fast Impregnation and Staining, Excellent for Fresh Tissues
The eliteGolgi Kit (Cat # 006690) is ideal for staining neurons in the olfactory bulb, cortex, cerebellum, brain stem, and spinal cord. The kit supplements and extends the capability of our proven superGolgi Kit (Cat # 003010). This kit can be used in combination with the superGolgi Kit and sliceGolgi Kit (Cat # 003760) to achieve a more comprehensive analysis of select areas of the brain (see Table below — The table is created as a reference for users to determine which Golgi Kit would be the best for staining neurons in specific regions of a mouse/rat brain).

The eliteGolgi Kit has been rigorously tested and validated on brain tissues freshly harvested from rats and mice (see Proven Results below). This kit allows neurons to be impregnated rapidly requiring only 3-6 days depending on the age, size, and region of the tissues. Moreover, the staining of neurons can be performed on either free-floating or mounted sections (50~250 µm thickness). The kit can be stored in a dark area at room temperature (4-25ºC) for up to 12 months.
Important! The eliteGolgi Kit does not work well on frozen tissues.
