Product Labeling Info

All products are marked "Research Reagents only, not for clinical diagnostic or therapeutic applications".

Product Packing Info

Each tissue microarray (TMA) is available as unstained, H & E stained. Some of the slides may have trial slides available at $15 -85 each. The product specification sheet is downloadable or exported to Excel format (csv, comma separated value) and will be shipped with stained or unstained tissue microarray slides.

Product Storage Info

Otherwise specified, tissue array products can be stored in a slide container and 4C refrigerator.

Product QA/QC Info

Each single tissue spot on every array slide is individually examined by pathologists certified according to WHO published standardizations of diagnosis, classification and pathological grade. Pathological re-confirmation report is generated and digital image captured. Before the tissue array are delivered to clients, standard immunohistochemistry tests are also performed to ensure the accuracy and specificity of tissue array products.

Declaration of Product Harmless

Neutral formalin-fixation and paraffin-embedding procedures have been applied to all specimens obtained from clinics. Consequently, no living organism would exist on any paraffin-embedded arrays.

Declaration of Specimen Collection

Each specimen collected from any clinic was consented to by both hospital and individual. Discrete legal consent form was obtained and the rights to hold research uses for any purpose or further commercialized uses were waived.
