Technologies

New technologies, including:

  • Tissue microarray construction using an automated tissue microarray tool.
  • Digital imaging of tissue microarrays for automated or manual interpretation.

Standard histology techniques, including:

  • Tissue fixation and processing.
  • Paraffin embedding of tissues.
  • Cutting sections and hematoxylin and eosin staining.
  • Cutting section using tape-sectioning methods that reduce distortion of tissues during transfer to the microscope slide.
  • Immunohistochemical staining of tissue microarray slides.
  • Tissue microarray construction using a manual microarray tool.
  • Construction of paraffin-embedded cell blocks.
