The UMass Tissue Bank 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 tissue bank serves as a dynamic collection and distribution service. Researchers are able to request fresh tissue and have specific study needs be met.
Requests are processed through our Request Specimens Form.
Services include Fresh Tissue Collection, Bone Marrow and Blood Collection, Embedding, Cutting Slides, and Additional Services to meet your specific study needs.
