Human Specimens

Solid Tissue

iSpecimen procures a range of solid tissue samples from healthy patients and those with medical conditions such as all types of cancers and benign conditions. Due to our access to the full electronic medical record, and vast network of hospitals, labs, tissue banks, and other healthcare organizations, we can select and annotate specimens with molecular and genetic characterizations, test results, outcomes data, and other pertinent specimen and patient characteristics, including medical conditions, demographics, medications, and procedures. Tissue is also available in matched sets of tumor tissue, normal adjacent tissue, biofluids, and/or cells as well as longitudinal collections from the same patient. Solid tissue formats we offer include:

  • Fresh, frozen, or fixed tissue
  • Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) blocks
  • Stained or unstained slides
  • Whole tissue
  • Tissue microarrays (TMA)
