Creative Bioarray provides a comprehensive range of pre-made and custom tissue arrays.
Creative Bioarray is one of the most reliable providers with the highest quality tissue arrays in the industry and maintains the most stringent standards on quality controls. they have constructed high quality tissue arrays from their in-house repository with a comprehensive archive of over 500,000 human tissue samples and 30,000 animal samples.
Creative Bioarray carries a variety of TMAs representing normal and cancer human tissue slides. All TMAs include slide layout and tissue pathology information.Clinical information has also been gathered and they will be able to offer the research community sets of large and high quality arrays linked to clinical information.
Tissue microarrays are produced by re-locating tissues from conventional histological blocks. Typically, 40 to 1,000 cylindrical formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue cores can be densely and precisely arrayed into a single paraffin block. From the block, up to 300 serial 4-8 μm thick sections can be produced and placed on individual glass microscopic slides. Tissue microarray enables parallel in situ detection of DNA, RNA, or protein targets in each specimen on an array at cellular and tissue levels; at the same time, the large number of available consecutive arrays allows rapid analysis of multiple molecular markers in the same set of specimens. Essentially the same tests performed on conventional histological samples including H&E staining, immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization can be done separately, or in parallel, on tissue microarrays.
Creative Bioarray provides custom tissue arrays to help scientists efficiently analyze gene and protein expressions in multiple tissue samples. Tissue microarray is a high-throughput technique that allows rapid gene expression and copy-number surveys of large numbers of different tissue specimens. In addition, it represents a technical revolution for highly effective use of human tissue specimens, which are both difficult and expensive to obtain in enough amount and case number.
Based on the availability of more than 500,000 human and 30,000 animal samples in their tissue bank, they have constructed high quality tissue arrays to satisfy customers’ special requirements.
They have also established standard operation procedure in custom array service. Their tissue microarrays are produced by re-locating tissues from conventional histological blocks. Typically, 40 to 1,000 cylindrical formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue cores can be densely and precisely arrayed into a single paraffin block. From the block, up to 300 serial 4-8 μm thick sections can be produced and placed on individual glass microscopic slides.
