The Biorepository Core collects and organizes biospecimens from investigators across the Research Institute. With a capacity for approximately 7 million samples, the facility is designed to house all of the biospecimens available at Children's Hospital, avoiding specimen duplication, preserving precious materials, and providing broad access to data and materials. Initial sample collection will focus on DNA samples, but with the addition of other freezers in the near future, the facility can also safely store fluids, RNA, tissue samples, and a number of other biospecimens.
