Non-cancerous tissue from the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank

Non-cancerous tissue

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.

For costs please see our costs of samples page.
