  1. Fee for service
  2. Resource Description
    "One of the consistent characteristics of neurodegenerative diseases is that they affect specific and stereotyped parts of the nervous system. Laser Capture Microscopy (LCM) enables researchers to precisely isolate material from these regions at the microscopic level. Investigators are able to isolate DNA, mtDNA, mRNA, miRNA and protein from precise populations of neurons. Proteins can then be used directly in experiments, while DNA and RNA samples can be expanded through appropriate amplification techniques."
