When does Biospective use FFPE vs. frozen tissue sections?
The choice between FFPE and frozen tissue depends on a number of factors, including the specific antibodies used for IHC & IF studies, the number of serial sections planned, and standardized protocols that we have established for different animal models.
How does Biospective track the rodent tissues?
We have a rigorous process for tracking tissues in block, slides, etc. We use an automated slide labeler to print information directly on the slides and we can trace information about each tissue throughout our entire process.
Are Biospective's tissue preparation processes automated?
We use state-of-the-art, automated equipment in our histopathology facility, which allows for a high degree of efficiency, reproducibility, and throughput. However, there are areas where the human touch produces the best quality. We have strived to seamlessly combine automation with the irreplaceable expertise of our lab team who have outstanding skills in key areas, such as tissue sectioning.
