Tissue MicroArray

Tissue MicroArrays (TMA's) are constructed by taking block(s) from different cases, core punching designated areas (desired areas of interest) and reconstructing the cores into a new block. One TMA block can house up to 230 cores resulting in 1 cut slide to represent multiple cases. A corresponding layout template, or layout grid, is also supplied. Click here for more information.
