Specimen & Data Repository


The Specimen & Data Repository offers high-quality archival biospecimens, medical chart abstraction services, and freezer storage solutions to researchers.

The Specimen & Data Repository is a secure 2,000 square-foot facility located at 1200 Washington Ave S equipped with direct liquid nitrogen supply, ultralow freezers, back-up power, full environmental control, and continuous freezer temperature monitoring.

This division offers a collection of archival tissues (frozen and FFPE) and biofluids for retrospective research studies. Additionally, it provides custodial freezer storage options to researchers seeking a secure, cost-effective alternative to maintaining their own specimens. All specimens are managed by BSI specimen tracking software and may be linked to patient medical chart data.
