Storing living tumor tissue connects patients to NEW options
Tumor tissue usage has traditionally been used for drug discovery and basic research until recently. SpeciCare is leading the way in bringing together individual research and precision cancer care delivery by collecting, processing and storing patients’ viable and fixed tumor tissue for all types of cancers in multiple formats including:
With our unique collection kit (SpeciKit®) we help you preserve your patient’s tissue at the time of surgery or biopsy. We will obtain all legal documentation from your patient to take control of his or her living tumor tissue and provide the SpeciKit® for use the day of surgery. The kit includes easy instructions for tissue collection as well as a pre-paid postage for easy delivery back to SpeciCare.
Upon receipt of your patient’s tissue, the pathology laboratory will process the tissue to confirm percent necrosis, percent viable tumor and document the number of aliquots of viable dissociated tissue and the number of vials of chunk tissue that were successfully collected and preserved for physician and patient directed use.
We help you create new treatment opportunities and clinically actionable research information in the treatment of your patients.
