Tissue Microarray comes to TRIP Lab

The TRIP Lab is offering tissue microarray (TMA) creation services with its brand new TMA Grand Master arrayer. This automated instrument can easily and quickly create TMA blocks with great precision and also extract paraffin embedded tissue samples to standard 0.2 ml PCR tubes to be used later in various molecular pathology applications. 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.
