Definition Offer high-throughput analysis of tissue h Offer high-throughput analysis of tissue histology and protein expression for the biogerontology research community. Each array is a 4 micron section that includes tissue cores from multiple tissues at multiple ages on one slide. The arrays are made from ethanol-fixed tissue and can be used for all techniques for which conventional tissue sections can be used. Ages are chosen to span the life from young adult to very old age. (available ages: 4, 12, 18, 24 and 28 months of age) Images of H&E stained punches are available for Liver, Cardiac Muscle, and Brain. The NIA aged rodent tissue arrays were developed with assistance from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Tissue Array Research Program (TARP), led by Dr. Stephen Hewitt, Director. NCI TARP contains more information on tissue array construction, protocols for using arrays, and references. Preparation and Product Description Tissue arrays are prepared in parallel from different sets of animals so that experiments can be conducted in duplicate, with each array using unique animals with a unique product number. The product descriptions page describes each array, including: * Strain * Gender * Ages * Tissues * Animal Identification Numbers * Tissues * Animal Identification Numbers
