Tissue Solutions Ltd

Glasgow, GB

Tissue Solutions is a virtual biobank, sourcing ethically acquired, fully consented tissue from our extensive global network. Our collaborating partners include direct hospital sources, commercial biobanks, and charities, as well as prospective post—mortem organ and tissue collection agencies.

One of the advantages of working with us is that we can widen our scope to include multiple storage facilities, thus allowing us to meet stringent requirements and tight deadlines more efficiently, and to supply a greater variety of tissues than a single biobank; Because our tissue service is a customised approach we are not restricted to a specific disease area in the types of tissue we are most likely to source.

Every source in our network has the required ethics or institutional review board (IRB) approvals in place, and we ensure that we have copies of this and their patient consent forms. Copies of our sources’ IRB /... Show more »

Fresh human skin is available for use in your drug discovery and development applications such as drug permeation studies, skin irritation and toxicology models and for the isolation of primary and stem cells.

We provide surgical excess tissue following cosmetic procedures and can supply sheets of fresh skin from abdomen (full thickness and dermatomed), breast, scalp, and occasionally from arm, upper and lower eye lid and back.

Post mortem skin can also be obtained from most areas of the body (depending on donor consent) and the typical post mortem intervals (PMIs) are 6-8 hours. The donor age range does vary but donors over the age of 65 will be more common.

All fresh skin samples can be shipped in your medium of choice and are supplied with details of the donors HCV, HBV and HIV status.

Our Tissue Procurement Team is extremely experienced in efficient and ethical prospective collection of human specimens for research.

  • Global sourcing network — We work closely with our collaborating hospitals and post—mortem
    sources. Tissue Solutions’ extensive network of sources is key to our ability to successfully
    meet stringent client requirement.
  • Ethics — All sources have obtained IRB/ethics approval to allow the provision of human tissues
    for research.
  • Meeting Tight Requirements — We have a proven track record in the provision of those “tough”
    human tissues, such as fresh samples and those with specific inclusion and exclusion criteria.
  • Custom Collections — By working closely with our collaborating hospitals and post—mortem
    sources, we can set up and manage customised collection programmes for specific client
    projects.

Ante— and Post—Mortem Tissue Collections

  • Living Donors — Samples can be prospectively collected from living donors, including blood, serum, plasma, urine, and skin biopsies, as well as fresh surgical excess tissue from both normal and diseased donors.
  • Post—Mortem — A wide range of tissue is available from our post—mortem sources on a prospective basis, including fresh brain and eyes. Please speak with our Tissue Procurement Team about your requirements.

Feasibility Studies

Our specialist tissue aquisitionists have more than 30 years of experience in sourcing human tissue for research. Our feasibility studies include the following:

  • Identification of collaborating clinicians and clinical groups willing to collect on your behalf
  • Establishment of realistic protocols and project timelines
  • Provision of realistic alternative approaches (if needed) e.g. different tissue types or
    experiments
  • Identification of currently banked, specialised collections relevant to your research.

All contact details of those potentially involved, and a brief description of their role, would be provided.

Establishing Clinical Collaborations

We are able to establish direct agreements between you and the human tissue source if required. For prospective collections we can prepare the project plan, recruit collaborating clinicians, and secure an agreement with the source, all on your behalf.

Obtaining UK Ethical Approval

For our clients in the UK, we also offer advice on the ethics application process. This can include:

  • Obtaining UK ethics approval on your behalf.
  • Preparing realistic protocols.
  • Designing patient information & consent sheets that conform to the National Research Ethics
    Service (NRES) guidelines.

Human Sample Transport Logistics

We coordinate tissue delivery direct from the source to you and deal with all logistics and paperwork, including expediting materials through customs in cross—border deliveries. We can implement logistics programmes anywhere in the world for efficient transport, and guarantee the maintenance of sample integrity whether it is banked or fresh, chilled or frozen.

Our experienced logistics team review transit requirements for each project and ship using validated packaging with the most appropriate courier. We work with a number of specialist couriers worldwide and continually review their performance.
