Multiple Embedding of Spinal Cords
MultiCord® Technology uses the same revolutionary set of technologies as MultiBrain® Technology, with as many as 40 spinal cords embedded, sectioned and stained simultaneously in the transverse/coronal plane. When there is value in viewing the same cord in different planes, multiple segments and planes of a single spinal cord can be processed together and presented on a single slide. With this configuration, up to 8 spinal cords can be processed within the same MultiCord® block. The images below depict both the “traditional” transverse option for sectioning as well as an example of multiple plane sectioning that can be accomplished through MultiCord® Technology.
