FFPE Biospecimens

Advancing medical research requires high quality FFPE biospecimens and human samples prepared according to exacting protocols in controlled laboratory settings.  In order to protect the privacy interests of human donors, IRB-approved procedures must be followed and full compliance with government regulations like 45CFR46 must be assured.

Lab-Ally works with the industry’s most trusted sources of clinical FFPE biospecimens, with access to millions of US-sourced FFPE tissue samples and other human specimens representing most oncology, autoimmune and neurological indications, as well as many other hard-to-find human samples, solid tumors, biopsies and biofluids. We specialize in building cohorts of FFPE samples to meet your specific inclusion and exclusion criteria.  We can also procure diverse animal tissue samples selected specifically to suit your research needs.

For additional resources and a discussion of issues related to FFPE block processing and human sample availability and appropriate experimental design, visit our Histopathology Resources page.


All samples are US-sourced unless specifically requested. All samples are handled only by qualified histologists and CAP certified-pathologists and are collected under the auspices of multiple IRBs. All samples conform fully with US 45CFR46 and other relevant government regulations and ethical guidelines. Specimens are subject to stringent QC checks by our pathologists prior to shipment. We offer a no-quibble warranty with all our shipments. If samples to not meet your specified inclusion and exclusion criteria, we will replace them. Scientists need to be able to trust the results of their research, so if you need tissue for research, Lab-Ally should be your first choice.
