Through support from the OHSU Cancer Institute, a growing collection of normal and neoplastic human tissues is available to local investigators. The tissues are stored in several ways, each one optimal for a particular use.

Paraffin-embedded, from formalin- or ethanol-fixed tissue:
Optimal for H&E stains and many types of special stains.

Frozen (bulk tissue):
Suitable for DNA, RNA or protein extractions.

Frozen (OCT-embedded):
Optimal for cryostat sections and immunohistochemistry.

Prepared upon request from bulk tissue and ready for analysis.

The laboratory can assist individual investigators in optimizing the collection of tissues from research animals.
