Collection Protocol Specifications:
Small pieces of tissue prepared by a certified medical pathologist are snap-frozen in liquid nitrogen usually within 20 - 30 min after the surgical excision or 4 - 12 hours postmortem in autopsy cases. A standard sample weighs 0.5 - 2 g on average and is supplied in a standard cryovial. An embedding media can be added upon request
 
Therapeutic Areas:
  • Oncology tissue samples (Cancer Quadruplet tissue set, cancer serum/plasma, blood in special tubes)
  • Inflammation ( synovial tissue synovial fluid, matching blood, serum, plasma)
  • Neurological Diseases (postmortem brain tissue from patients with PD and AD)
  • Normal Tissues (4 - 12 hours postmortem and surgical collection)
