TMA Grand Master

The TMA Grand Master has a capacity for 60 donor and 12 recipient blocks, elevating the pathological workflow to a completely new level. It can transfer up to 260 tissue cores per hour. This saves both time and costs, and enables examining several hundred specimens in a single paraffin block. In addition, with the new PCR extraction function, you can obtain tissue samples in a targeted manner for PCR analyses.

The slide overlay function was developed to automate and simplify the workflow as far as possible while simultaneously ensuring optimal TMA quality: The scanned image of a tissue section is stored in the TMA software and overlaid with the corresponding photographed paraffin block containing the embedded tissue. As a result, TMA markings made on the digitised tissue section in the CaseViewer software can be transferred precisely to the paraffin block and define the tissue samples that are to be transferred from this donor block to the recipient block.
