Pathology and Laboratory Medicine


The Biorepository offers banked frozen tissues, fresh/snap frozen collected biospecimens, and recuts from FFPE blocks to research investigators so they can contribute to medical discoveries. The Biorepository is located in the Division of Anatomic Pathology in Ziskind 4 at Tufts Medical Center. For questions, contact the department at (617) 636-5831 or

The Biorepository is partnered with Maine Medical Center's BioBank, more information about which can be found on their website.

To request tissue or other biospecimens, send an email to Include a brief summary of your study, as well as the specific services you are requesting from the Biorepository. Please attach the IRB approval letter and protocol for your study. After receiving these items, the Biorepository will create a quote for the services requested. This quote will be reliant on what services are provided and if the study is directed by a Tufts Medical Center or Tufts University Investigator (Tier 1), a Non-Tufts Academic Investigator (Tier 2), or an Industry Sponsor (Tier 3).
