Summary: Tissue Microarrays (TMAs) or tissue array or tissue chips, originally described by in 1987 by Wan, Fortuna and Furmanski and popularized by Juha Kononen, is a powerful new technology for high throughput analysis of protein expression in a large number of tissue samples. Hundreds or thousands of tissue cores are arranged on a single slide, and then analyzed by a single immuno-staining or in situ hybridization reaction.

Creating an Interactive Database for Image Viewing & Data Input
(Giorgio Cattoretti, Institute for Cancer Genetics, Columbia University )
The major problem of using tissue microarray is how to simultaneously examine each core at the microscope, know its identity and input the score in a database next to the correct identifier. Here offers you simple methods of using Excel to achieve these goals.
