Better procurement of tissue samples for research

New BBMRI.nl publication showcases the impact of efficient, consistent, and transparent tissue sample procurement on pathological research in the Netherlands

The need for biological resources is growing persistently to enable precision medicine. Implementation of the Dutch National TissueArchive Portal (DNTP) allows utilization of PALGA’s nationwide network for requesting Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) tissue samples for research purposes across the Netherlands. In a publication in Cell and Tissue Banking, Robin Verjans et al. from BBMRI.nl show how implementation of the DNTP improved the frequency, efficiency, and transparency of FFPE tissue sample procurement for research in the Netherlands.
