Breast tumor tissue microarray (slide 24 of 2600 cases of breast cancer survey slide set), containing 85 cases of invasive ductal carcinoma, 6 invasive lobular carcinoma, 2 each of medullary carcinoma and Paget's disease, 5 malignant phyllodes tumor, 1 each of mixed lobular and duct carcinoma, mucinous carcinoma, invasive cribriform carcinoma and metaplastic carcinoma, duplicate cores per case
Routine histology procedures including Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and In Situ Hybridization (ISH), protocols which can be found at our support page.
1. TMA slides were sectioned and stored at 4°C and may not be fresh cut, but still suitable for IHC. Please request fresh cut if experiment involves phospho-specific antibodies, RNA studies, FISH or ISH, etc. A minimum of 3 slides per TMA must be purchased to cover the cost of trimming for fresh sectioning.
2. Most TMA slides were not coated with an extra layer of paraffin (tissue cores can be easily seen on the glass). To prevent tissue detachment during antigen retrieval, unbaked slides must be baked for at least 30 to 120 minutes at 60°C. before putting into xylene for de-paraffinization. Baked slides were sent out baked for 2 hours.In the following specsheet,“*” means invalid core; “-” means no applicable or negative in IHC markers.
