Purchasing Tissues from Our Bank



Canine cancer patient biospecimens are available for scientific use through the Canine Comparative Oncology and Genomics Consortium (CCOGC) and the Pfizer-CCOGC Biospecimen Repository.

The Pfizer-CCOGC Biospecimen Repository currently houses over 2,000 patient samples across seven spontaneously arising cancer histologies.

Here is the list of histologies available in our bank:

The pricing is available by clicking on the above histology name.

Samples available from each patient include:

  • Tumor (formalin fixed, snap frozen and OCT)
  • Normal tissues (formalin fixed, snap frozen and OCT)
  • Serum
  • Plasma
  • Urine
  • Whole Blood (from both EDTA & PaxGene RNA collection tubes)

During re-organization of the CCOGC we are suspending tissue sales. Please check back for further information on the bank status and tissue releases. We will however make matched blood and frozen tumor/normal tissues available to successful applicants to the recent P30 Cancer Center Call at no charge. We will not be able to provide slides from any samples as these require further processing and would incur a cost. Please note we are unable to guarantee the availablity of requested samples. To obtain a letter of support and a list of available samples for your application please submit your request by email to the CCOGC at Please allow 10 business days for a response.
