The NHSGGC Biorepository is an invaluable resource for clinical research, providing access to a wide range of human tissue samples including surplus materials from diagnostic and surgical procedures. We can also provide access, with appropriate governance in place, to pathology archive specimens.
Through close collaboration with all clinical departments we source fully-consented surplus tissue and other materials in order to fulfill the need for these in studies requiring human tissue.
Each anonymised sample is associated with a limited set of clinical and demographic data held by the Biorepository. If necessary the scope of these data can be expanded upon through our close collaboration with the NHSGGC Safe Haven.
As part of the NRS Biorepository network we provide streamlined access to anonymised samples and associated data Scotland-wide.
