    3. 3. Tissue Micro Arrays Quality Control & Assurance SOP:• Fully qualified tissues for studies and assays• Sample cores selected by Board-certified Pathologists• Every Array slide is individually read and quality checked• Every 25th slide from Array block stained and read by Pathologist• Spot size & % retention assessed (95% assured)• Quality control & verification of pathological data associated with each sample
    4. 4. Tissue Arrays Top 5 problems with TMA • Poorly fixed tissues & fixative/embedding medium not optimized for detecting target molecules of interest • Detachment of specimens while processing • Heterogeneity of tissue samples • Sectioning artifacts & lack of batch-to-batch consistency • Access to relevant clinical dataData from secondary research
