Improve Your Research With
Tissue Microarrays

We can source tissue microarrays (TMAs) to meet your research project needs. Tissue microarrays can be sourced or custom prepared for both normal and diseased tissue types. TMA slides can also be obtained as an alternative to the entire block.

Tissue microarrays (TMAs) are paraffin blocks with a number of different tissue cores arranged in an array format. The use of TMAs in research allows scientists to analyze many different tissue samples at the same time. TMAs can contain samples of all the same tissue type or many different tissue types, and can come in several array formats (eg. 24, 60 or 96 samples).

Example Tissue Microarray 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.

Delivery of Tissue Microarray Samples

We know the importance of delivering tissue microarray samples on time and in good condition. Tissue microarrays are typically shipped at room temperature, but they can also be shipped according to your specific requirements. We work with several different courier companies, which allows us to choose the best option for optimal shipping conditions and delivery speed.

Our Network of Biospecimen Providers

We work with a worldwide network of biospecimen providers, including academic/hospital biobanks and a variety of other providers. We only work with biospecimen providers who meet our strict standards with regards to biospecimen quality and ethical compliance.

It is our priority to ensure that we can source all types of biospecimens. As a result, we are constantly looking to add new providers to our network. If you are a biospecimen provider, please contact us for more information about joining our network.
