Services:

An "Account" is a collection of specimens related to a protocol-based, contracted agreement to collect, process and/or store specimens on behalf of an investigator, group or program.
‘General Holdings’ are anonymous specimens accrued by the bank, not associated with a particular account, and generally available to investigators for a fee.

Getting Started:

To access the core, request specimens or establish an account, please contact Kathleen Kee at
(617) 732-6780 or by email at kkee@partners.org.
