LC242b

Non-small cell lung carcinoma tissue array with normal tissue as control, including TNM, clinical stage and pathology grade, 12 cases/24 cores, replacing LC242a

Microarray Panel:Non-small cell lung squamous cell carcinoma tissue microarray, containing 10 cases of lung squamous cell carcinoma and 1 each of normal lung tissue and adjacent normal lung tissue, duplicate cores per case
Cores:24
Cases:12
Layout:6 cols × 4 rows
Core Diameter:1.5 mm
Thickness:5 µm
Quality Control:H&E and IHC confirmed
Applications:

Routine histology procedures including Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and In Situ Hybridization (ISH), protocols which can be found at our support page.

Notes:1. TMA slides were sectioned and stored at 4°C and may not be fresh cut, but still suitable for IHC. Please request fresh cut if experiment involves phospho-specific antibodies, RNA studies, FISH or ISH, etc. A minimum of 3 slides per TMA must be purchased to cover the cost of trimming for fresh sectioning.
2. Most of the TMA slides were not coated with an extra layer of paraffin (tissue cores can be easily seen on the glass). We still recommend 30 minutes of baking at 60°C before putting into xylene for de-paraffinization procedure.

† For precise diagnosis, refer to pathology description.

**The grade 1-3 (or I-III) in Pathology Diagnosis is equivalent to well-differentiated, moderately-differentiated or poorly differentiated, respectively, under microscope.
Grade 1 or well-differentiated: Cells appear normal and are not growing rapidly.
Grade 2 or moderately-differentiated: Cells appear slightly different than normal.
Grade 3 or poorly differentiated: Cells appear abnormal and tend to grow and spread more aggressively.
Grade 4 or undifferentiated: *(for certain tumors), features are not significantly distinguishing to make it look any different from undifferentiated cancers which occur in other organs.

TNM grading:

The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) TNM system
T groups
TX: Primary tumor cannot be assessed
T0: No evidence of primary tumor
T1: A single tumor (any size) that hasn't grown into blood vessels
T2: Either a single tumor (any size) that has grown into blood vessels, OR more than one tumor where no tumor is larger than 5 cm (about 2 inches) across
T3a: Multiple tumors with at least one tumor that is greater than 5 cm (about 2 inches) across
T3b: At least one tumor (any size) that has grown into a major branch of the large veins of the liver (the portal and hepatic veins)
T4: The tumor has grown into a nearby organ (other than the gallbladder), OR the tumor is growing into the thin layer of tissue covering the liver (called the visceral peritoneum)
N groups
NX: Regional (nearby) lymph nodes cannot be assessed.
N0: The cancer has not spread to the regional lymph nodes.
N1: The cancer has spread to the regional lymph nodes.
M groups
M0: The cancer has not spread to distant lymph nodes or other organs.
M1: The cancer has spread to distant lymph nodes or other organs.
