Onco-Ref™ Custom FFPE Cell Block Service- The FFPE Experts™

 

Custom FFPE Services

Our Custom FFPE Services allows you to receive FFPE Cell Block Services with a fast turnaround time  without compromising quality and consistency.  Simply ship us your cells.  If needed, we can culture the cells for you, fix the cells using buffered formalin (24 hours, typically), and then embed your cells into a  paraffin cell block.  If requested (optional),  we can prepare FFPE slides or  FPPE scrolls from a freshly prepared FFPE Cell Block.   We typically turnaround a FFPE block in 7 working days from receipt of 1 x 108 cells.

FAQ

What is the turnaround time for a Custom FFPE Cell Block?

We usually can prepare a block in 7 working days from 1X 108 cells.  

How do you perform Quality Control (QC) on the FFPE Cell Block?

We usually inspect the cell pellet before embedding it with paraffin wax.  On a periodic basis we prepare sections at 5 microns and stain with H&E and take images to determine uniformity of the cell dispersion.

How do you fix the cells before preparing a FFPE Cell Block?

We typically fix cells in 10% buffered formalin for 24hrs at room temperature.  However, upon request we can fix cells using a custom protocol. Please inquire.
