Tissue Embedding and Sectioning

Regardless of where your specimens are processed, we deploy the same advanced technologies with the same exacting procedures to produce highly combinable results. Keeping a watchful eye on consistency, we are able to offer a host of options:

  • Eliminate contamination or degradation with special handling of samples for genomics testing
  • Process multiple sample types with a variety of nucleic acid purification services, including formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) DNA/RNA extraction

  • Select from standard or customized thickness, depending on your protocol

  • Use standard or positively charged glass slides and polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) slides for laser capture microdissection
  • Choose standard and nuclease-free microcentrifuge tubes
  • Obtain consistent results with stringent standard operating procedures
  • Guard against cross-contamination with nuclease-free services
  • Meet your specific study requirements with FFPE DNA or RNA isolation
