Tissue Micro Arrays

 Tissue Arrays Applications

  • Antibodies and In Situ probes validation
  • Demonstration of correlation between expression levels and cancer stage morphology
  • Marker distribution study in various organs and diseases

 Technical Benefits

  • Access large cohort studies without large budgets
  • Greatly reduced consumption of reagents
  • Better tissue specimen use and preservation
  • Better statistical value, studies on large number
  • Better experimental value, all specimen on the same slide, controls
Tissue Micro Array (TMA) allows assembling tissue cores from different donor blocks in the same paraffin block. A TMA block may contain hundreds of tissue cores from different cases (using Minicore® Tissue Arrayer).

 Excilone offers a complete Service around TMA technique
