The Erasmus MC Virtual Tissue Bank is embedded in the department of Pathology. The collection is meant for medical research purposes only. This concerns a typical clinical based pathology biobank. Tissue samples left over from surgical resection specimen are stored under liquid nitrogen and can be requested by Erasmus MC scientists for medical scientific experiments.
An application has been developed to enable scientists to search the collection on-line and request tissue samples over the Erasmus MC Intranet. Every request shall be judged according to procedures determined by the Erasmus MC Tissue Bank.
A growing need is anticipated for large collections of well-diagnosed fresh frozen tumor tissue and, if available, corresponding pre-malignant and normal tissue samples. Scientific research on patient residual material has to comply with strict rules and regulations.
The Erasmus MC Tissue bank manages the PALM microdissection laser for the center for Biomics, which is available through the center for Biomics ONLY after having followed an introduction course. Additionally, a complete TMA (Tissue Micro Array) platform, fully funded by the Josephine Nefkens Stichting, consisting of a Beecher Automated Tissue Arrayer ATA 27 and a Virtual Microscope or Nanozoomer from Hamamatsu and Medical Solutions with TMA analyses software strongly supports translational research on tissue samples. Complete histologic Images from the Virtual Microscope are available within the Erasmus MC Intranet or available on the Internet either by overview or a direct example.
