The Pathology and Biorepository Core offers blood and tissue processing, nucleic acid extractions, sample quality assessment, large-scale aliquoting and more. Our highly trained staff will work with you to determine the best method for your exact experimental needs. In addition to our full-service offerings, we also have several pieces of shared equipment available for use.
VARI staff that need a login (or further CrossLab support) should contact Lori Moon and MSU staff that need a login should contact Erica Lange.
