Improve Your Research With
Tissue Slides

We can source tissue slide samples to meet your research project needs. Tissue slide samples can be obtained for both normal and diseased tissue types.

Tissue slides are an invaluable resource for life science researcher. They are created by taking sections from an FFPE tissue block, and adhering them to a glass microscope slide. Sourcing tissue slides, instead of entire FFPE tissue blocks, can be a much more cost-effective way to complete your research project.

Example Tissue Slide 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 Slide Samples

We know the importance of delivering tissue slide samples on time and in good condition. Tissue slides are typically shipped at room temperature, but they can also be shipped according to your specific requirements (eg. on dry ice). 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.
