Specimen Storage Facility (SSF)

Overview of Services

The Biospecimen Management Core (BMC) offers cost-efficient processing & storage services with a focus on consistent quality and sample integrity.  The Specimen Storage Facility (SSF) currently maintains four mechanical freezer storage sites and a LN2 freezer storage site.  Both investigator and SSF owned freezers are monitored and maintained by SSF staff 24/7 to virtually eliminate specimen loss due to freezer failures.  Quality is maintained via our contracted independent QA oversight and guidance. Our facility and procedures are ISBER compliant (International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories).
