Improve Your Research With
FFPE Tissue Block Samples

We can source FFPE tissue blocks to meet your research project needs. We can obtain FFPE blocks for both normal and diseased tissue types.

Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) tissue blocks are widely used for clinical diagnostic purposes, but they also have important uses in life science research. Clinical remnant FFPE tissue blocks, or custom prepared FFPE blocks can be obtained according to your specific research requirements.

Example FFPE Block Requests

Cutting edge life science research often requires very specific biospecimen collection criteria.

We have the expertise to help you formulate the exact specifications to match your needs.

With our network of providers, we have the resources to supply even the most difficult to find samples.
