Microwave fixation system To accurately measure neurochemical events in vivo, avoiding the post-mortem changes that occur in the brain.

Microwave fixation rapidly inactivatesenzymes involved in the metabolism of several metabolites and some neurotransmitters.

Useful when measuring acetylcholine, choline, cyclic AMP, cyclic GMP, GABA, DOPA, 5-HTP, serotonin, endorphin, prostaglandin, catecholamines and their metabolites, phosphorylated proteins and glycogen in the brain.
