A tissue arrayer is a simple, manually operated laboratory instrument that enables researchers to array up to 1,000 tissue samples in a single paraffin block. It uses two punches: one to create a regular array of holes in a recipient block and a second punch to collect precisely sized cores from selected regions of donor tissue blocks. X-Y micrometres define the coordinates of the array.
Monash Histology Platform can create multi-core blocks according to your specific requirements.
