Yale Pathology Tissue Services - YPTS

  • YPTS is a Pathology-based Central Tissue Resource Lab providing comprehensive tissue related services and material for investigators at Yale and beyond.
  • YPTS provides services as a shared resource of the Yale Cancer Center

Mission

To provide the maximum amount and quality of human tissue for research at Yale University without impacting diagnostic quality, accuracy and safety in anatomic pathology.

Executive Summary

Human tissue, collected by physicians for diagnostic purposes, is an extremely valuable resource for translational research. However, this resource is limited in amount and constricted in scope of use by the fact that it initially belongs to the patient from whom it was taken, and once collected, is an asset of the institution. Its diagnostic usage supersedes all other uses. There are now a proposed set of policies and standard operating procedures that will provide for optimal management of pathology resources including fresh, frozen, and fixed tissue, included tissue from the Yale Pathology Departmental Archives.
