RE: [Histonet] Tissue Microarrays.

From:"Lee & Peggy Wenk"

If it's any help, there will be an NSH teleconference on tissue microarrays
on Wed. June 15, 2005, at 1 pm EDST.

If interested, go to:
Click on Education
Click on Teleconference

Call IMMEDIATELY, as the handouts, slides, etc. have already been mailed.

The following is the abstract.

Tissue Microarrays
Tissue microarray has emerged as a great  breakthrough in the field of
histotechnology. This technique allows for multiple patients to be reviewed
on the same slide by a pathologist with the aid of a computer.  Once the
tissue microarray is constructed and sectioned, a wide range of staining
techniques can be performed, such as IHC, IF, ISH, special stains and even
QC controls for H&E stains.  A practical histological approach and method
will be discussed, to present the purpose, design, block selection, array
construction and sectioning of tissue microarrays.
Presenters:  Wanda Jones, HT(ASCP) & Paul Billings,  University of Alabama,
Birmingham, AL 

(I am the NSH Teleconference Coordinator, but, no, I don't get paid to do
this. It's volunteer.)

   Tissue  Microarrays  are  not  hard  to  do  once  you  understand the
   process.   I  have  several articles on constructing microarrays and I
   answer  questions in email and phone often.  You can go the my website
   and  see a basic array created without using expensive instruments and
   other helpful information.

   I hope this helps

   >What  kind of response did you get on this?  I have a pathologist who
   seems  real  hung  up on contracting out TMA's to someone (actually in
   England,  maybe you!).  I am justm wondering from a routine standpoint
   and doing some pre-clinical work on rodents, what would be the benefit
   of  us getting a system in place or contracting out this work?  I mean
   I  took  a  class  in  how to prepare them a few years back, bascially
   taking  the  specimens and putting them in spots on the block with the
   legend  etc.  I  mean  could  one do this without fancy machinery, and
   what is the real use for this stuff?
