Re: [Histonet] Tissue Microarray tools

From:Akemi Allison-Tacha

  I just saw a new "TMA Builder" that Lab Vision has available cat# TMA-001 under Research Tools in their new catalog.  It looks similar to what woorie-medic's tissue punch extractor looked like.  The mold is totally different though, it has a metal clamp & a metal recipient base mold with 24 core indentations.  Have you seen it?  Any comments?

Can anyone recommend a good system for making tissue microarrays. We
are not
a large volume lab (approx 250 IHC per month), so I would be looking
manual methods for accomplishing this. My planned uses would be for
antibody evaluations and controls.

Thanks, Annette
