Frozen multiple organ normal tissue microarray, containing 15 types of normal organs (ovary, pancreas, salivary gland, liver, placenta, prostate, skin, spinal cord, spleen, skeletal muscle, testis, adrenal gland, thyroid gland, cervix and ureter), each organ taken from 3 normal human individuals, single core per block
Routine histology procedures including Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and In Situ Hybridization (ISH), protocols which can be found at our support page.
Tissues were snap frozen in liquid nitrogen immediately after excision and were embedded in OCT. The array sections are 5-8 µm in thickness, mounted on positively charged glass slides, and briefly fixed by cold acetone.
Mouseover and click individual cores to view high resolution images.
