From Tissue to Imaging

TISSUE MICROARRAY (TMA)

BioMatrix Tissue MicoArray enables the simultaneous assay and analysis of a large number of human tissue samples in a single experiment. We have developed a unique tissue microarray platform utilizing high throughput molecular pathology and diagnosis to provide clinically relevant data and research services for quantitative and/or screening studies. We have collected over 20 different tumors with paired normal tissues and blood in our tumor biospecimen repository. We can provide standard and customized high-density tissue arrays, formalin fixed and frozen (OCT) tissue blocks and other research services.
