Tissue Microarray

Tissue microarrays are high effective tools for high-throughput molecular analysis of tissues. These types of microarrays are identifying new diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers including human cancers. They have many different uses in basic research, prognostic oncology and drug discovery.  Tissue microarray has become widely used tool for all types of tissue-based research. Tissue microarrays are making a significant impact in basic research findings and playing a major role in clinical and diagnostic applications.  See a nice review of the technology here:

Manufacturing high quality tissue arrays has become a critical task.  Automation to remove human intervention has been created to manufacture tissue arrays of the highest quality.  View this video to see the process.
