Arden Tissue Bank can provide storage for tissue collections to be used in future research.

We have formerly hosted the largest Head & Neck cancer tissue collection in Europe, and act as a storage centre for a number of multicentre trials e.g. Chopin, Aspect, Famished.

Tissue Bank staff offer practical laboratory and advisory support to a number of research teams within the Trust and local Universities, and has facilities to provide a range of routine histology services:

  • Tissue processing
  • Section cutting
  • Tissue micro arraying
  • Immunocytochemistry
  • High resolution digital imaging of tissue sections- brightfield and fluorescent. (3D Histech Scanner - software can be provided for viewing)

Charges for the above can be found here.
