Tissue microarrays (TMAs) allow for simultaneous analysis of thousands of well-characterized tissues and have, therefore, become a standard research tool for tissue-based studies. All types of in situ analysis can be applied to tissue microarrays, including immunohistochemistry, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and RNA in situ hybridization. The TMA technology thus enables highly standardized, fast, and affordable translational research studies of unprecedented scale that substantially facilitate translational research.
