arrow12Paraffin Tissue Microarrays

Paraffin tissue microarrays (TMAs) are becoming more common in the laboratories. Current techniques including organizing, punching, and inserting tissues is time consuming and involving costly equipments.This Arraymold is the simple tool but great answer for this current technique for laboratories to perform TMAs with less time consuming, excellent results.

With this Arraymold, you can process up to 150 specimens onto one single slide with very little time consuming, minimal technical training.

The DVD instruction is accompanying with each kit, will step by step guide you to perform through the entire TMAs process. Arraymold features include:

  • Allow pathologist or researcher to view many different samples on the same single slide
  • Helpful in finding IHC markers for control or quality assurance from hundreds of samples
  • Staining markers will be more consistent when hundreds of samples are on one slide
  • Used less costly antibody
  • Arraymold kit is small enough to be stored in a drawer
  • Rubber arraymold can be reused many times without losing its flexibility.

The Aqua-Hold Pap Pen draws a liquid repellent barrier around a section of tissue. Used like a paint pen, you just draw a well on a slide. The barrier creates the proper surface tension to hold aqueous solutions such as costly antibody and other valuable specimens. After application, the barrier material is insoluble in alcohol and acetone but can be removed after staining with xylene. Each pen holds 13ml of long-lasting material, making hundreds of wells. Red tint distinguishes the well drawing on the slide to easily view.

Tissue Capture Penarrow12Tissue Capture Pen

With one swift application of the EMS Tissue Capture Pen, you are able to change your plain glass slide into a coated one.

The EMS Tissue Capture Pen is a coating pen with a wide point (18mm) for fixing various tissue sections (paraffin embedded, frozen and formalin sections, etc.) The unique pen is unaffected by heat up to 120°C so it offers secure and firm adhesion of the tissue section. It may be used in Microwave staining, immunostaining, in situ etc….

One application is all that is needed, and after it is applied, allow to dry for 1-2 minutes.

The EMS Tissue Capture may be used in conjunction with our Pap-Pen (71310) and will allow for easy placement of adherent as well as nonadherent cells on a glass slide. Immunostaining/ISH can be performed by applying a few drops of tissue suspension or liquid media onto the glass slide which is circled by the Pap-Pen, and then your section can be placed.
