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). DNA and RNA from tissue can be prepared on request. We hold breast cancer tissue from both female and male patients.

Building a custom request via the sample finder allows you to specify:
  • 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.
