Technical Description Preparatory Work

It is important to realize that most of the work (approximately 95%) devoted to TMA manufacturing is traditional pathology work that cannot be accelerated by machinery. This preparatory work is similar to what is needed for traditional studies involving ''large'' tissue sections, apart from the number of tissues involved, which can be an order-of-magnitude higher in TMA studies than in traditional projects. The preparatory work includes:

1. Identification of potentially suited tissues.

2. Review of all sections from all candidate specimens to select the optimal slide.

3. Definition of the structure (outline) of the TMA, including generation of a file that contains the identification numbers of the tissues together with their locations and real coordinates (Fig. 1 and Table 1).

Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
