At Creative Bioarray, all FFPE tissue specimens are collected by certified medical pathologists under the approval of IRB. Tissues are fixed in 10% neutral-buffered formalin for 30 to 60 minutes after surgical resection. Fixing agents and embedding media can be customized upon request. Standard-sized FFPE tissue can produce at least 500 x 4-5µm cuts. The collection of all samples is in full compliance with regulatory standards and best-practice guidelines. From resection to storage to shipment, each specimen is handled carefully and precisely to ensure the highest quality specimens are delivered to our customers.
