We describe a method of embedding 100 or more different tissue samples in a normal-sized paraffin block, the multitumor tissue block (MTTB). MTTBs allow the simultaneous immunohistologic testing of numerous tissue samples on a single slide with one drop of antibody. Because all of the tissue samples are treated equally during immunostaining, most sources of variation are removed and comparative studies are facilitated. MTTBs containing miscellaneous neoplasms are suitable for screening of… CONTINUE READING
