MesobanK collects fresh mesothelioma tumour samples, stored for 24 hours in RNALater and then frozen at -80 degrees. Matched aliquots of DNA are available on request.

Blood and pleural fluid samples from patients with proven mesothelioma are also stored in aliquots as serum, plasma and buffy coat at -80 degrees.

All samples are available with a clinical data set and are shipped using a direct courier from our central biorepository in Hertfordshire.

Sections from the 1000 patient TMA are available on request.

Novel, low passage cell lines are also available. Currently 26 cell lines have been prepared and are available to researchers. Further information about the cell lines is available here.

Data sheets for cell lines 3T, 7T, 8T,12T, 14T, 23T, 29T, 33T and 53T are available by clicking on the corresponding number on the spreadsheet.
