Formalin-fixed Paraffin-embedded (FFPE) Human Liver Tissue Blocks from Samsara are fixed immediately following collection from viable human liver and embedded in immunohistochemistry-grade paraffin. Tissue blocks are used for producing tissue sections that are ideal for histochemical staining, immunohistochemistry (IHC), in-situ hybridization (ISH), and laser capture microscopy (LCM). Comprehensive donor history report includes relevant medical history and board-certified pathologist assessment of NAFLD activity score (NAS) and Batts-Ludwig fibrosis score. All livers come from consented donors and test negative for HIV I/II, HBV, HCV and Syphilis prior to acceptance.
