Journal References to
Research Work Done
Using a Dosaka Microslicer

Following is a list, by year and alphabetized by lead author within year, of about 150 journal articles where researchers used a Dosaka Microslicer to slice their tissue. Even though this is a comprehensive and representative list, nevertheless it is not exhaustive; there are many more articles that are too numerous to list. Each article is linked either to the publisher's or distributor's full-text article, or at least to an abstract where a full-text article can be retrieved. Often an abstract does not mention the instrument, but the full text article always will.

You will find light (fluorescence and confocal) microscopy and electron microscopy applications. You will find immunohistochemical applications. You will find applications in the field of neuroscience of all sorts, pharmacology, electrophysiology, ophthalmology, radiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, molecular genetics, anesthesiology, pathology, and many other applications. You will find a very diverse set of animal species studied, as well as a diverse set of organs and tissue: Many different sections of brain but also other organs. There are even several references to uses with plants.

This demonstrates the quality, flexibility and usability of this excellent family of instruments.
