TMA Instrumentation

Minicore 3 is a semiautomatic TMA instrument. With this instrument we are able to make multiple identical TMA blocks at a time by collecting cores of either 0,6 mm or 1,0 mm in diameter. One TMA block can contain up to maximum of 300 cores. We also have manual methods for larger punches.
