Human biospecimens for respiratory research

Through our partner AnaBios, we provide guaranteed high-quality human lung tissues, to help generate highly valuable data and early human insights into a drug’s efficacy and safety in respiratory conditions before clinical trials.

Working with accredited transplant centres, AnaBios offers cryopreserved, precision-cut lung slices processed using a vibratome and slices generated are stored at -196°C with a RIN (RNA Integrity Numbers) score greater than 7. 

AnaBios obtains all biospecimens from fully consented donors, directly from the original source with a traceable and transparent tissue origin. All transplant centres are accredited and fully compliant with local laws for human biospecimen collection. Samples are available in frozen formalin-fixed and RNAlater®️ formats.
