NovoPath Biobank

The NovoPath Biobank (previously CePA) was established in 2017 as an NHS resource for research. It has full Biobanking REC approval until 2022. It includes provision for access to tissues that are surplus to diagnostic purposes on a prospective basis ‘on request’. It also allows for access to the huge tissue archive of FFPE blocks dating back some 25 years; to give some context to this, currently >200,000 blocks per annum are currently collected and stored.
