Biospecimen Section & Arrays

Introduction to Biospecimen Section & Arrays

We offer an extensive and unique collection of tissue blocks*, slides, frozen arrays, and FFPE arrays for human normal, diseased, and tumor tissue types. Please make an inquiry if you need a particular tissue type and cannot find it on our website. We also offer custom tissue procurement and services to fit your needs. One of the features that our customers rely on the most is our large selection of hard-to-find diseased tissues, such as the matched pairs of tumor tissue (matching adjacent normal tissues with the primary tumor or metastatic tumor tissues). These specimens are invaluable tools for discovery research and diagnostic product development.

    Frozen Tissue Array

BioChain's Frozen Tissue Arrays are the largest of its kind on the market and are made using our proprietary preparation technology. From the same high quality tissues, we also offer frozen tissue slide products. Fresh frozen tissues are arrayed on positively charged glass slides. This line of products allows for rapid detection of gene and protein expression in a wide variety of tissues.

    Frozen Tissue Section 

BioChain's Frozen Tissue Slides are ideal for rapidly identifying cellular localization of RNA or protein. The tissues are excised and then immediately frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80oC. Tissues are identified by a board licensed pathologist, sectioned at 5-10 micron thickness and mounted on positively charged glass slides. The slide is fixed and dehydrated with cold acetone. Each tissue is tested for quality and has shown consistent results in both in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry analysis.

    Frozen Tissue Section Panel

BioChain's Frozen Tissue Panel consists of 5-8 different frozen tissues that are arrayed on one positively charged glass slide. They are ideal for rapid detection of gene and protein expression in a wide variety of tissues.

    Paraffin Tissue Array

BioChain's tissue arrays and tissue microarrays (TMAs) are useful tools in biomarker research and drug target validation. They consist of paraffin blocks that are assembled in array fashion to allow multiplex histological analysis. BioChain's TMAs provide a valuable tool for analysis of protein, RNA, and DNA molecules in oncology, both the malignant and metastatic markers. TMAs can also be constructed with tissues from other diseases and species.

    Paraffin Tissue Section

BioChain's paraffin tissue sections are ideal for rapid identification of RNA and protein cellular localization. A single tissue section with 5 micron thickness is mounted on a positively charged glass slide. It is ideal for fast detection of genes and protein expression in specific tissues.

    Match Pair – Paraffin Tissue Section 

BioChain's human paraffin matched pair tissue section products include: Primary Pair (PP), Primary and Metastatic Pair (PM). PP consists of paraffin tissue sections of primary tumor and its adjacent normal tissue; PM consists of paraffin tissue sections of primary tumor and corresponding metastatic tumor. Paraffin tissue sections in each pair are prepared from the same donor. This product line is ideal for localization of tumor- specific genes and tumor metastatic genes.

    Match Pair – Frozen Tissue Section 

BioChain's tissue products are based on the sample repository network established following the ethical standard and IRB-approved procedures. The repository covers a wide variety of species and diseases, including human adult and fetal normal tissues, human diseased and tumor tissues, as well as mouse, rat, and monkey tissues. During the collection, the excised tissues are immediately put into liquid nitrogen and then identified by a board-licensed pathologist. Patient demographic and disease related history data are available. Human frozen matched pair tissue section products include: Primary Pair (PP) and Primary and Metastatic Pair (PM). PP consists of frozen tissue sections of primary tumor and its adjacent normal tissue; PM consists of frozen tissue sections of primary tumor and corresponding metastatic tumor. Frozen tissue sections in each pair are prepared from the same donor. This product line is ideal for localization of tumor-specific genes and tumor metastatic genes.
