  • All fresh frozen tissue samples are collected under IRB approval by certified medical pathologists.

  • The standard sample weight is 0.5 – 1.0 gram.

  • Tissues are stored in vapor-phase liquid nitrogen (-190°C).

  • Frozen tissues are never allowed to thaw after initial freezing.

  • Any diseased tissue specimen may be individually ordered or paired with its respective FFPE tissue or fluid sample (i.e. blood or biofluid) or NAT (normal adjacent tissue)
