Unitma Automated Tissue Microarrayer 272B

Quick Ray Master is an automated tissue microarrayer running by simply connecting to user’s computer through USB port. The system extracts
the sample tissues from the donor blocks and delivers the extracted sample tissues into the correspondent hole of the premade recipient block
automatically. And the researcher can access the data file for the current TMA work by using the Tissue Array Report Program (TARP) developed
by UNITMA. The 4 different sized tips are manually changeable to associate with the desired core size of the recipient blocks: 1mm, 1.5mm,
2mm, and 3mm. UATM-272B is smarter instrument compared to UATM-272A, and is designed for the users to be easily familiar with.
The instrument provides economical efficiency in time, quality, and cost of tissue preparation by fully automating tissue microarraying process.
