The review appears in Cancer Research's OnlineFirst section, and both summarizes the challenges associated with molecular analysis of FFPE biospecimens as well as highlights analytical techniques and parameters that result in strong concordance with a fresh or frozen cohort.
The ISBER Biospecimen Science Working Group has compiled hundreds of biospecimen science references from both the clinical and the environmental sectors: click here!
A new review summarizing the effects of FFPE processing factors on nucleic acid, protein, and morphological endpoints appears in the November 2014 issue of Arch Pathol Lab Med. The review was drafted using references housed in the BRD.
NCI BEBPs are literature-annotated procedural guidelines based upon entries contained within the BRD. The first BEBP in an anticipated series is now available at biospecimens.cancer.gov/resources/bebp.asp and addresses snap-freezing of post-surgical tissue biospecimens.
