Theranostics Health provides pathologist-directed laser capture microdissection (LCM) services to isolate, or enrich for, specific cells of interest (e.g. tumor or stromal cells) from a prepared tissue section. Services can be performed from either tissue blocks or prepared sections that are provided by the client. In addition, methods for preparing protein lysate preparations from either frozen or formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples are available.
LCM services for isolating cells can be performed as part of an integrated service that involves RPPA proteomic analysis, or can be provided as a stand-alone service in situations where the investigator prefers to conduct their own internal analysis of the LCM-prepared materials. Please note that LCM services are intended for isolating cells for the purposes of proteomic analysis, and that our LCM facility does not support RNA or DNA-based analyses.
LCM services are supervised by our board-certified pathologist.
