NC TraCS Biobanking Service
The NC TraCS Biobanking Consortium coordinates services to help investigators collect, process, and store human specimens for research. High quality specimen preparation is critical for accuracy of downstream analytic tests. Biobank guidelines are available at biospecimens.cancer.gov
There are four major campus facilities that process and bank human specimens. These facilities may provide additional services such as extraction and storage of DNA or RNA, and advice about preanalytic study design (specimen collection, assessing specimen quality). Contact the facilities below for details on collection/storage, policies for release of materials, prices, and associated information.
