Guidance and assistance is available to assist with biospecimen processing and repository needs of researchers, establishing a rigorous process for sample acquisition, management and use. By connecting participants and samples to investigators and research opportunities, the CCTS helps facilitate translational research in collaboration with the specimen and tissue procurement units and cell analysis shared facilities. A compendium of existing sample collections available for collaborative study bolsters these efforts.  


This centralized resource of biorepositories assembles information about specimen collections including a specimen inventory, standard operating procedures, and internal and external information related to biorepository management.  Learn More >
This collection of facilities offer specimen processing, DNA preparation, cell line banking and an analytic capacity. Its staff work closely with investigators to offer bedside-to-bench research services for those using the Clinical Research Unit.  Learn more >

This facility provides services to the national and international research communities for the collection, processing, storage and distribution of human tissue specimens for research-related activities. It coordinates and manages a number of different human tissue biorepository operations, from banks to prospective procurement.  Learn more >

Cell and Microscopic Analysis

The mission of this core is to provide state-of-the-art cell sorting and analytical flow cytometry services to support research programs. The core encourages collaborations and synergy. A variety of services and equipment is available at two locations — the Bevill Biomedical Research Building and the Shelby Biomedical Research Building. Learn more >

This core consists of a hybridoma lab and phage display labs. In addition to supplying traditional hybridoma services, it provides investigators with novel approaches for monoclonal antibody (mAb) development as well as expertise in immunoassay design, epitope characterization, and phage display technology. The core produces and distributes a variety of frequently used monoclonal reagents (i.e., anti-tag reagent, anti-mouse, or human CD antigens) at highly economical prices. Learn more >
