TISSUE SECTIONS & TISSUE MICROARRAYS

Fluofarma's services for automated biomarker quantification in tissue samples are supported by core skills in paraffin-embedded histology. We can source for human archival tissues, isolate and analyze tissues from animal models to complement in vivo data with molecular information, and construct custom tissue microarrays (TMAs) to fit specific experimental designs.

CAPACITIES FOR CUSTOMIZED TISSUE SOURCING & SAMPLING

 

> Access to human archival tissue samples, through privileged partnership with comprehensive cancer center (patient clinical data available)

> Key expertise in paraffin-embedded histology: 

Design & implementation of in vivo study protocols with specific tissue sampling strategies, to complement in vivo data with molecular studies (automated high-content histology).

IN-HOUSE CAPACITIES FOR CUSTOM TISSUE MICROARRAYS CONSTRUCTION

Fluofarma operates a platform dedicated to the construction of tissue microarrays (TMAs) to support high-content histology studies:

> A high-throughput format: tissue microarrays consist of hundred of tissue spots assembled on the same histologic slide, thus allowing to analyze simultaneously large experimental series at high-throughput

> A flexible format: tissue microarrays can be constructed from human archival tissues and clinical samples, animal tissues and xenografts, artificial 3D microtissues or cell pellets

> Custom sampling strategies: to meet specific goals (target or biomarker validation, pathogenesis studies, patient stratification), Fluofarma implements different TMA assembly strategies, such as multi-tumor microarrays, progression tissue microarrays, biopsy tissue microarray, ...

> Multiplexed immunostaining: immunofluorescence or immunochemistry detection
