10x Genomics obtained fresh frozen mouse brain tissue (Strain C57BL/6) from BioIVT Asterand. The tissue was embedded and cryosectioned as described in Visium Spatial Protocols - Tissue Preparation Guide Demonstrated Protocol (CG000240). Tissue sections of 10 µm thickness from a sagittal slice of the anterior were placed on Visium Gene Expression Slides.

  • Sex: Male
  • Age: >8 weeks
  • Strain: C57BL/6
  • Section Orientation: Sagittal Slice of the Anterior

The H&E image acquired using a Nikon Ti2-E microscope with the following settings:
