Collection, Storage, Annotation, and Distribution of Human Biologic Specimens

The University Of Massachusetts CCTS Tissue Bank and Biorepository houses both a collection of fixed, paraffin embedded tissue and samples which were collected fresh and frozen/processed immediately following surgery. When possible, surrounding healthy tissue samples are also processed and stored.

Along with the storage and processing of samples, the biorepository serves as a dynamic collection and distribution service. Researchers are able to request fresh tissue and have specific study needs be met.
