Biobank

Overview of Services

The Biobank is a core facility of the Department of Pathology and the Stony Brook Cancer Center. It archives and provides biological specimens collected under informed consent to Stony Brook researchers and their collaborators.  Originally established in 2004 by the Department of Pathology in the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, the Biobank supports specimen-based research at Stony Brook University. The Biobank team works closely with individual Principal Investigators as well as surgeons to obtain biological specimens under informed patient consent. Banking of biomedical specimens is done in a state-of-the-art, dedicated laboratory to ensure complete molecular and morphological integrity.  Our newly refurbished Biobank houses normal and malignant biological specimens including tissue samples, organs, bodily fluids, and other biomaterial using vapor phase liquid nitrogen cryogenic storage at -196ºC, which allows for better cell preservation and revival than -80°C freezing. This highly effective storage system gives researchers access to a host of powerful investigative tools, which may help to improve diagnoses and treatments for a variety of conditions.
