TMA1

HistoGenex produces tissue microarrays (TMAs) by re-locating tissue from conventional histologic paraffin blocks such that tissue from multiple patients or blocks can be seen on the same slide. This is done by using a needle to biopsy a standard histologic sections and placing the core into an array on a recipient paraffin block.

At HistoGeneX we employ an automated system made by 3D Histech to ensure size and depth consistency of cores in addition to a providing a standardized layout.

 

 

 

HistoGeneX routinely constructs TMAs from:

  • Clinical trial specimens
  • Tissue banks
  • Research projects
