TYPE OF SAMPLES COLLECTION
Biospecimens are offered in several formats to meet research needs:
- Fresh frozen (FF) tissue samples and biofluids, formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FPPE) tissue samples, or tissues otherwise preserved as requested. We can separate whole blood into different fractions (plasma, serum, PBMCs, buffy coat) and dissociate fresh tissue into individual viable cells.
- A tumor and matched adjacent normal tissue.
- A matched pair of specimens provided in both FFPE and fresh frozen (FF) formats that are derived from the same tumor.
- A full set of specimens from the same patient: a matched pair of FF and FFPE tissues with an accompanying set of biofluids (whole blood, serum, plasma, etc.).
