SciPro now carries a range of Tissue Microarray Instruments, from Manual to Fully Automated.
Tissue Microarray – Effective tools for high throughput molecular analysis. Tissu MicroArray (TMA) is the technique of creating multi-tissue blocks. This procedure requires a blank paraffin block (recipient block) to host the tissues in a paraffin-embedded tissue block (donor block) and two hollow needle sets of different sizes. The technician can then use the microtome to section the block into 100-500 TMA slides to be used for validation to discover biomarkers for cancer. TMA provides high throughput data acquisition, allows the entire cohort to be analyzed in one batch on a single slide, decreases assay volume, time and cost.
EverBio Technology's series of TMA Instruments ranges from manual to fully automated.
See below for more informationon the series of Tissue-Micro-Arrayers.
AutoTiss ONE Semi-Automatic is a compact, semi-automatic tissue microarray (TMA) arrayer. A cost effective updgrade option for anyone using the manual TMA punchers. It is a convenient system that constructs the TMA block by extracting the specimen on the holder in mnay forms. The holder and program can be customized to your needs.
AutoTiss 10C Fully Automatic is a compact and fully automatic tissue microarray (TMA) arrayer. This system will decrease the time and labor involved in creating blocks using the layout designed by the user. Integrated software allows for the collection of all the data. The arrayer can hold up to 10 blocks at time and it comes with 5 different punch sizes.
Auto-Tiss 1000 Plus Fully Automatic is the next step up, more capacity than the Auto-Tiss10C. This (TMA) arrayer can hold up to 32 blocks at a time. It has a mutli-task module adapter allowing it to hold a 96 well plate, mega blocks and standard blocks.
