What is ngTMA® ?
ngTMA® is our way of constructing tissue microarrays. As strong believers in a personalized medicine approach, tissue biomarkers and digitization in pathology, we make these tissue microarrays by integrating exceptional technology and our more than a decade long experience in designing tissue microarrays, investigating and validating biomarkers.
Without a doubt, the value and reproducibility of tissue biomarkers and their results can be improved using ngTMA®. In general, tissue microarrays are advantageous for many reasons: they allow us to study protein, RNA or DNA-based biomarkers on hundreds of patient samples in a cost-effective and resource-sparing way.
But what happens if your tissue is heterogeneous? When the standard tissue microarray is not enough to answer your question? When you are interested in a special histological area not accessible by conventional tissue microarraying? When you want to compare your molecular sequencing data to protein expression in the same histological areas?
You need to create a tissue miroarray that is designed for your needs that will help answer a targeted research question. You need an ngTMA®.
