Paraffin-based TMA
Frozen tissue-based TMA
Note: Tissue Microarray (TMA) is a powerful tool for cancer research and drug discovery. In the TMA
technique, individual tissue cores are obtained with a hollow needle from different formalin-fixed, paraffin
embedded tissue blocks and are then inserted in a recipient paraffin block in a precisely spaced, array
pattern. Each TMA block can be sectioned using a microtome. All resulting TMA slides have the same
tissues in the same coordinate positions. Each microarray block can be cut into ~35 sections. These
collections of tissue cores result in a dramatic increase in throughput for in situ examination of gene
status and gene expression from archival specimens. Applications commonly employed are
immunohistochemistry, conventional staining, in situ Hybridization (ISH), fluorescent in situ hybridization
(FISH), RNA or DNA expression analysis, evaluation of various biomarkers, and the TUNEL Assay for
apoptosis and other morphological and clinical characterizations of different tissues. Take advantage by
saving reagent costs while maintaining uniformity of assays. The development of TMAs requires
significant interaction between the constructor and investigator.
