Intracranial Tumor Implantation

The Mayo Clinic Brain Tumor Patient-Derived Xenograft National Resource has a specific methodology for injecting a cell suspension into the brain.

Typically, short-term explant cultures are implanted into the right basal ganglia using a stereotactic frame and syringe pump with 300,000 cells injected in 3 microliters of saline over three minutes.
