We provide samples of non-cancerous tissue, either snap frozen or formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE). DNA and RNA from tissue can be prepared on request. Non-cancerous tissue available includes:
- normal tissue from cosmetic reduction mammoplasties (no history or family history of breast cancer)
- tissue from prophylactic mastectomies (carriers of genetic mutations or family history that predisposes breast cancer)
- contralateral tissue (tumour in the other breast)
- surround or adjacent tissue to the tumour.
