Cytoo this week launched its CytooChip micropattern array platform for high-content screening of cells.
According to the Grenoble, France-based firm, the CytooChip platform can be used to study a number of phenomena, including cell signaling, cell adhesion and polarity, cell division, and precise protein co-localization.
Amsbio recently began offering frozen tissue arrays for validating potential biological targets in diagnostics, therapeutics, and the studies of protein markers and genes.
According to the Abingdon, UK firm, the tissue arrays are manufactured using fresh frozen tissues identified by a board-licensed pathologist and prepared on positively charged glass slides. Each frozen tissue array can contain up to 40 different normal adult human tissue types with three donors per tissue type, Amsbio said.
The company also allows customers to design custom human tissue arrays for target expression and biomarker analysis in diseased and normal tissues.
