BioChain's tissue products are based on the sample repository network established following the IRB-approved ethical standard and procedures. The repository covers a wide variety of species and diseases, including human adult and fetal normal tissues, human diseased and tumor tissues, as well as mouse, rat, and monkey tissues. The tissues are immediately put in liquid nitrogen after being excised, and then identified by a board-licensed pathologist. Patient demographic and disease related history data are available.
BioChain's frozen tissue section line encompasses a large selection of tissue sections which are good for immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization. The tissue sections are approximately 5-10 µm thick.
BioChain's Frozen Tissue Slides are ideal for rapidly identifying cellular localization of RNA or protein. In addition to the normal tissues, we also offer the slides for a variety of human diseases. A single human diseased tissue with 5-10 µm thickness is mounted on a positively charged glass slide. The slides are fixed and dehydrated with acetone for consistent results with in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry.
