Inventory

Current Inventory:

The numbers in the following table reflect the discrete cases and, parenthetically, the total number of samples from those cases. The inventory list is updated quarterly. The following Tables are tissues specific to the HTR-TASR. Other tissues available are:

  1. Archival tissue from UNM and Presbyterian Hospitals

  2. Tissues from the Office of the Medical Examiner

  3. Tissues can collected prospectively for investigators

Expanded Breast Cancer Registry (EBCR)

This is a complicated tissue collection consisting of over 400 consented patients with multiple time points and types of tissue collected. The following were collected on each patient.

- 5 serum aliquots maximum/participant/collection (like Baseline or FUP time)

- 10 plasma aliquots maximum/participant/collection

- 10 DNA aliquots from whole blood/participant/collection

- 2 DNA aliquots maximum from mouthwash or swab/participant/collection

- breast tissue (fine needle aspirates, vials and OCT molds) - all cases are different.

Please contact the HTR-TASR for more detailed query of this dataset.
