We offer a range of CNS tissue and biofluids from a wide range of neurological diseases with disease pathology e.g. neurofibrillary tangles, Lewy bodies, tau pathology from patients with CNS disorders such as:
- Alzheimer’s (all Braak stages)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Major depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Mild cognitive impairment (including scores for TICS-m, mini-mental exam etc)
- Huntington’s disease
We can provide either frozen or formalin-fixed tissue from any region of the brain, spinal cord and DRGs as well as from normal age-matched controls. These samples are obtained from specialist CNS research centres with CNS pathologists in situ.
If you need to access RNA or DNA from brain tissue we can supply this as well. In addition, we can provide you with CSF, whole blood and serum from patients with these disorders and from controls.
We can also provide matched CSF and serum/plasma from live donors with CNS disease such as Alzheimer’s and MCI. These samples are collected longitudinally with very comprehensive diagnosis and detailed medical history. We can also supply blood/plasma/serum from patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke.
Pre-Trial Sample Validation
At Tissue Solutions, we appreciate the complexity of sourcing tissues for research projects. That is why we project manage the full process for you so you can focus on what is most important – the research.
We partner with your team to provide end to end project management of your projects from sample collection, through to processing and shipping of clinical samples to validate your pre-trial projects.
