Penn Medicine BioBank

Summary:

The Penn Medicine BioBank assists researchers in need of access to human samples. Our facility banks blood specimens (i.e., whole blood, plasma, serum, buffy coat, and DNA isolated from leukocytes) and tissues (i.e.,formalin-fixed paraffin embedded, fresh and flash frozen). All studies requesting specimens must have IRB-approval for access to human samples. Additionally, each study must apply to the Penn Medicine BioBank Steering Committee for approval. Requests for blood and tissue will be reviewed by a panel of scientists and ranked. Priority will be given to those investigators with current NIH funding, but will be made available as recommended by the Steering Committee. These access decisions will be made on an individual basis, though the committee may consider some or all of the following issues: the nature and scope of the project, how much sample is requested, and the impact on Penn Medicine.
