Premade Recipient Block


Unitma provides the premade recipient blocks patented in global to save the valuable time and cost in creating the recipient blocks additionally before starting TMA work.

The premade recipient block is made of special material which melts when heated at about 70 °C for 30~60minutes . The blocks have evenly spaced round wells arranged in a square matrix which conforms to digital pathology trend.

Currently, six different sized blocks are available :

– 320(16×20)holes of 0.5mm in diameter
– 120(10×12) holes of 1mm in diameter
– 90(9×10)holes of 1.5mm in diameter
– 60(6×10)holes of 2mm in diameter
– 30(5×6)holes of 3mm in diameter
– 20(4×5)holes of 5mm in diametera










  • TMA success rate up to 99%
  • Maintains tissue integrity during embedding
  • Up to 300 tissue slices per a block
  • High durability during microarraying
  • Standardized block configuration for the simple image analysis
  • Saving the additional time and cost in preparation of recipient blocks
  • The blocks are to be delivered in a single package to prevent them from possible damage and/or deterioration during transportation and storage.
