Fresh Frozen Tissue Collection And Storage At Geneticistinc

Storing and collecting freshly frozen networks is not an easy task. The collection and storage of tissue samples must meet the strict industry standards of the Institutional Review Board. At Geneticist Inc, they collect and purchase fresh frozen human tissue samples only by a certified medical pathologist and with approval from the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

INSTITUTIONAL REVIEW BOARD(IRB):

The Institutional Review Board (IRB) is responsible for reviewing the methods used to examine tissue samples. When collecting and storing frozen tissue, the IRB will ensure that the methods used comply with standard procedures and precautions. They carry out regular and in-depth analyses of all methods to ensure that all parties involved comply with the regulations.

COLLECTION:

Freshly frozen specimens were taken from surgical specimens with the written consent of the patient. A lot of preparation is done to minimize network processing time. The following materials and equipment are required for collection and storage:

  • Tubes Before Bar-Coding
  • Labels must be clear and have a laminated sheet.
  • Liquid nitrogen is required for rapid freezing.
  • Dry ice is required for the transfer of the collected samples and for storage.

STORAGE: 

Store tissue in tanks with liquid nitrogen, and plasma and serum stored in an ultra-freezer at an average temperature of -75°C. The standard weight of our samples is between 0.5 and 1.0 grams, and quality control methods for our samples include eosin and hematoxylin staining and RNA analysis. 

To avoid any problem, samples will be separated at different locations during the storage process in case of equipment failure. The sample is then transferred to a specified location of liquid nitrogen. Dry ice is used to maintain the necessary conditions for freshly frozen samples and steam tanks.
