Tissue Services Core


Our mission is to collect, process, archive and distribute high quality human tissue with relevant clinical data for research.

The Tissue Services Core collects tissue that is not utilized for diagnosis and processes it in a scientific manner so the tissue can be used, as required, for research.

  • After the tissue is used for evaluation, the rest of the tissue that is not used for diagnosis is usually discarded. Tissue Services Core (TSC) collects, processes, archives and distributes this tissue to investigators for research.
  • TSC also has archived formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue (FFPET) blocks for research utilization.
