Onco-Ref™ Custom FFPE Cell Block Services

Our Onco-Ref™ Custom FFPE Cell Block Services gives you the flexibilty to receive a custom FFPE product with high quality and consistency with a fast turnaround time at a great price. Simply ship us your cells. If needed, we can culture, fix the cells using buffered formalin (10% for 24hrs at room temperature, typically), and then prepare a cell core and embed the core into a paraffin block. If requested (optional), we can prepare FFPE Cell slides or FPPE Cell scrolls from a freshly prepared FFPE Cell Block. We typically turnaround a FFPE Cell block in 7 working days from receipt of 1 x 108 cells.
