Genetic Research Facilities
These facilities and resources have been structured to fulfill the needs of the multi-disciplinary research programs at Fox Chase Cancer Center. They have been designed to enhance ongoing research by supplying information, reagents and technical expertise not readily available to the individual investigator.
The Biosample Repository Facility was established in 1999 and has extensive experience in collecting and banking human biosamples for research and clinical studies. This laboratory, which is located in the Cancer Prevention Pavilion at the Center, is fully equipped for the processing and banking of human blood specimens.
The Genomics Facility consists of four component services:
- Cytogenetics and Chromosome Microarray Analysis*
- Expression Microarray*
- Genotyping and Real-Time PCR*
* CCSG facilities
