Archived Human Tissue


With appropriate IRB approval, the UCSF Biospecimen Resources (BIOS) Program is able to identify and retrieve archived human tissue blocks for Center members.  Blocks can then be recut for histologic, immunohistochemical or molecular analyses.  Tissue microarrays can be prepared upon request. 

To learn more about obtaining archived human tissue, please contact the BIOS program here.

The Liver Center discounts this service for its members by subsidizing a portion of the cost of tissue retrieval.  If you wish to receive the Liver Center discount, please contact the Liver Center administration here before scheduling work.
