Tissue Microarray Service

Tissue Microarray (TMA)

The TMA Grand Master is a fully automated instrument that can easily and quickly create TMA paraffin blocks by extracting cylindrical tissue cores from different paraffin donor blocks and re-embedding these into a single recipient (microarray) block at defined array coordinates. TMAs are a valuable, high-throughput method for diagnostic and research purposes. By being able to place hundreds of different samples into one paraffin block, TMAs bring major economies in time, quality and costs of tissue preparation, slide preparation and staining. Our TMA Construction Service includes design and creation of customized paraffin recipient blocks, tissue core transfer and insertion, TMA block sectioning and TMA slide staining.
