NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Windber Research Institute will join BioServe's biospecimen network under an agreement announced today.
BioServe said that it will supplement its clinical-grade biospecimens in its Global BioRepository with biosamples from WRI's Tissue Bank, which includes cancer specimens and non-disease tissues. Biospecimens collected and stored by WRI include plasma, serum, tissue embedded in optimum cutting temperature, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue, and flash frozen tissue.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Earlier this month, BioServe announced it was supplementing its Global BioRepository with biospecimen samples from the University of Massachusetts Medical School's Cancer Center Tissue Bank.
