Facility Details

We are CAP Accredited!

The UNC BSP is a centralized, quality-controlled facility and biorepository for the processing, storage and disbursement of human specimens. The facility is geared for high throughput processing of human biospecimens, with specific emphasis on DNA and RNA isolation and purification.

The Facility provides laboratory support for investigator-initiated large-scale clinical, epidemiologic, and other studies. We also function as a human specimen biorepository resource for clinicians who wish to store and study samples from unusual or potentially important patients. Our biorepository is managed by a custom LIMS, with sample accessioning, tracking and audits at each step.

In addition to laboratory services, the facility provides a scientific resource for investigators seeking advice/consultation on study design including specimen collection and storage methods, and human subject issues. Core staff act as a liaison to other UNC core facilities and outside collaborators.

Our mission is to provide a cost-effective UNC facility to process biospecimens from population, clinical, and other studies.
