The Advanced Molecular Pathology Laboratory (AMPL) is a one-stop service for researchers and industry partners developing tissue arrays, and validation of clinical material. Our College of American Pathologists (CAP)-compliant facilities provide: •Technical support for tissue-based research•High quality tissue bioresources for the research community and biomedical industry Core StrengthsTo ensure the highest professional standards, AMPL has a team of experienced and qualified diagnostic histopathologists, supported by experienced medical and laboratory technologists. Researchers will have access to a variety of techniques necessary for human tissue-based research from histopathology consultation to immunodiagnostics. AMPL is closely linked with the SingHealth Tissue Repository (STR), which is the largest research tissue repository in Singapore. Please confirm that this is still the case. See comments above.AMPL provides a full-range of research services at cost-efficient prices, pegged below clinical laboratory charges for similar services. Services provided include: 1. Pathology and histological consultationConsultation with a qualified pathologist supported by a team of pathology associates for:•Interpretation of histology and immunostaining •Classification and grading of neoplasms according to standard or protocol-defined criteria•Selection of material for downstream applications•Interpretation of histochemical and immunohistochemical stains•Histological techniques, such as tissue processing, cryosectioning, microtomy, standard and special histochemical staining
3. Tissue microarray construction
4. Fluorescence in situ hybridisation
5. Nucleic acid extraction
The scope of work and service fees depends on the nature of the protocol, the complexity of the procedure and the number of specimens.
