Cancerous tissue from the Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank


We provide samples of cancerous breast tissue, either snap frozen or formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE). We hold breast cancer tissue from both female and male patients. Using the criteria below the Tissue Bank can narrow down the samples suitable for your work depending on your scientific question:

  • receptors – ER, PGR and HER2
  • patient gender
  • menopausal status
  • invasive characteristics – tumour type and grade 
  • non-invasive characteristics – DCIS status/LCIS status
  • sample characteristics – preservation method, tissue type, primary or recurrence.
