One of the major features of this collection is the diversity of biosamples: frozen or paraffin-embedded tissue and blood-derived products (mainly plasma and serum).
Moreover, the clinical data associated with the samples are enriched with stage, LDH level at diagnosis and validation status by the french Lymphoma Network.
For each tissue sample, we store a median number of 3 lesional FFPE blocks at +4°C.
Additional tissue fragments may be included in paraffin (room temperature storage)
The paraffin-embedded tissue blocks can, on request, enable the construction of collections dedicated to targeted pathologies as tissue microarrays (TMA).
Characterization by immunohistochemistry of paraffin-embedded tissue blocks can be performed on request, with a whole range of antibodies.
Liquid biopsies collections
In the lymphoma collection, 20 % of samples included have matched blood-derived material.
It includes, plasma, serum, cell pellet, PBMC and whole blood samples stored at -80°C.
