At the present time, within the Humanitas Center for Biological Resources have been activated an Oncological Collection and an Haematological Collection. Within the Oncological collection are preserved mostly tumoral fragments snap frozen and the corresponding non-tumoral fragments from a number of oncological diseases. More recently we also implemented collection of the matching plasma and sera samples. In the Haematological Collection are preserved bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMC), peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), plasma and sera from hematological donors. Corresponding clinical data are also archived within the BRC database.
