TSC Biosamples Available at No Cost to Researchers

Are you looking for samples from TSC patients to use in your lab? The TSC Biosample Repository has a growing collection of samples that are tied to phenotypic data. In most cases, we can ship these samples at no charge to the investigator. By the end of May 2019, we have shipped 749 samples for use in diverse projects, ranging from quantification of sphingolipids in plasma to investigating mitochondrial DNA heteroplasmy. As of May 31, 2019, the TSC Biosample Repository has collected: 349 buccal cell samples for DNA isolation 237 blood samples from which plasma and white blood cells have…
