Formalin-Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) Tissue

FFPE tissue specimens are collected under IRB approved protocols. They are stored on site in our climate controlled inventory or sourced on demand from a network of CAP/CLIA certified partnering laboratories. Board certified medical pathologists and qualified personnel oversee the entire process to ensure strict adherence to specialized collection protocols tailored to suit the needs of the client. All samples are collected in full compliance with regulatory standards and best-practice guidelines.

All FFPE samples are re-embedded in fresh paraffin and housed in research cassettes offering a fresh, uniform and clean appearance to the product. The samples are enclosed in our customized GLAS climate-controlled storage containers that protect the research samples from temperature extremes and physical trauma that may be encountered during shipping. All samples are quality tested including H&E staining before exiting our facility.

Data elements supplied in electronic format accompany each FFPE order and can be customized to suit the researcher’s needs.
