Tissue microarray (TMA) combined with Digital Image Processing Analysis provides the means for fast, cost-effective analysis of hundreds of tissue specimens. Up to 400 tissue cores can be placed on one glass slide, stained, scanned and analysed with identical conditions. Manual analysis of Tissue Microarray slides can be overwhelming, tedious, time consuming and labour intensive.
Visiopharm and ISENET-USA can provide an Integrated Platform which can improve the quality and reproducibility of TMA design, production and visual imaging analysis.
