The Matched Pair Paraffin Tissue (MPPT) slides are designed for identifying tumor-specific/metastasis genes or proteins. Slices from normal and malignant tissues are mounted on each MPPT slide which can then be treated as a single histological slide for H&E staining, immunohistochemistry, or in situ hybridization. This format allows a rapid analysis of protein expression and localization across normal and cancerous tissue.
GeneTex’s tissue slides contain 4 μm sections of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human tissue (1-2 cm x 1-2 cm) affixed to positively charged glass slides. The normal and carcinoma tissues are arrayed on slides from left to right. Tissue diagnosis was performed by certified pathologists.
