Resource:University of Minnesota Tissue Procurement Facility

Name: Resource:University of Minnesota Tissue Procurement Facility
Description: Procure and distribute human tissue and other biological samples in support of basic, translational, and clinical cancer research at the University of Minnesota. The TPF is a centralized resource with standardized patient consent, sample collection, processing, storage, quality control, distribution, and electronic record maintenance.

Since the 1996 inception of the TPF, over 61,000 tissue samples including well-preserved samples of malignant and benign tumors, organ-matched normal tissue, and other types of diseased tissues, have been collected from surgical specimens obtained at the University of Minnesota Medical Center-Fairview (UMMC-F) University Campus.

Surgical pathologists are intellectually engaged in TPF functions, providing researchers with specimen-oriented medical consultation to facilitate research productivity. Prior to surgery, TPF personnel identify and consent patients for procurement of tissue, blood, urine, saliva, and ascites fluid. Within the integrated working environment of the surgical pathology laboratory, freshly obtained tissues not needed for diagnosis are selected and provided by pathologists to TPF personnel. Tissue samples are then assigned an independent code and processed. TPF staff can also work with researchers to individualize the procurement of tissues to fit specific research needs.
