Many attempts to improve the perfusion of mammalian tissues aim at changes of the osmotic pressure. We describe a method for fixation of nervous tissues controlling both the hydrostatic pressure and the flow rate of a perfusion solution. The constancy of these parameters is guaranteed by an electronically controlled perfusion pump. Thus, a more uniform and complete preservation can be achieved. Further advantages of this method include provision for a rapid succession of rinsing and fixation solution and a continuous control of the hydrostatic pressure during perfusion.
