US Biomax, Inc. provides human tissue microarray products and related services. It develops and manufactures human tissue arrays, including colon, prostate, breast, cervical, ovarian, lung, bladder, thyroid, stomach, esophageal, rectum, kidney, and liver cancer tissue arrays, as well as malignancies. The company enables scientists to identify, verify, and validate the molecules of diagnostic and therapeutic importance, as well as offers immunohistochemistry staining and in situ hybridization services to customers for their tissue array experiments. It also manufactures common types of normal multiple organs of tissue arrays. In addition, it provides paraffin tissue blocks and tissue microarray OEM services; and protocols for immunohistochemistry staining and in situ hybridization.
Standard paraffin or frozen H&E staining. Does not include sectioning.
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) service is provided to customers with specific needs for experiments on tissue array. These analyses are performed to localize the protein/gene of interest by using customer-supplied antibodies, DNA fragments or oligonucleotides on normal and diseased human tissues selected from US Biomax's vast selection of tissue arrays and tissue bank. These services are highly cost-effective and conducted to the highest standards to assist you in understanding function of your genes/proteins or in identification and validation of your potential diagnostic and therapeutic targets. The results can be given as a publishable, detailed pathology report accompanied by high-resolution digital photographs.
US Biomax uses an automated IHC stainer (Ventana) for high staining quality that ensures reproducible results. The research platform allows for customization of the reagents and protocol for best results. We offer multiple levels of detection amplification, allowing for highly sensitive assays to ensure that there are no false negatives. The use of a Streptavidin-Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) minimizes nonspecific binding compared to biotin-based detection systems.
This service fee covers optimization for one antibody, testing pH 6.0 and 8.5 antigen retrieval and multiple dilutions for best results. One slide will be stained, and another can be stained at a different dilution. Isotype control staining and further slide staining is an additional fee.
Paraffin tissue processing, embedding, sectioning and staining and frozen tissue sectioning
