"The goal was to identify the dorsal raphe in rat brains, an area rich in serotonergic neurons, so that I could determine double-label in that region. I had been using an AB from Abcam, but they stopped making it. Found this product with a google search, and the vendor had a fair return policy. Strong signal that identifies dorsal raphe; aqueductus alone is not sufficient landmark. Great for free floating sections fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde. Probably can be used at less than 1:500."
