FFPE Tissues

A unique and extensive library of human tumor FFPE tissue blocks with matched double spun plasma, follow-up and molecular data.

Through collaborations with top medical centers in West Europe and the UK, TriStar has built a network of repositories that offer an expansive range of archived human biological samples for use in oncology drug development research.

All samples are obtained with appropriate ethical approvals and are available in a range of formats to best suit your research needs, contextualized with clinical, molecular, and follow-up data.

Wide range of sample types

  • FFPE tumor samples
  • FFPE normal (non-malignant) samples
  • Standard & Custom FFPE TMAs
  • FFPE tissue and blocks sections
  • Double spun plasma
  • Pathological, molecular, and clinical data
  • Scanned images

Highly characterized tissues from a range of tumor types

An expansive repository of quality human biological samples in multiple formats to fit your research requirements. Samples include all malignant disease types and subtypes plus non-neoplastic conditions seen in the clinic, characterized with molecular, and follow-up data.

FFPE samples include the following tumor types

  • Breast (ER+/HER2+ (incl. TNBC),
  • Lung (including NSCLC & SCLC),
  • Colorectal
  • Prostate
  • Ovarian
  • RCC
  • HCC
  • Melanoma
  • Pancreatic
  • Gastric
  • Head & Neck SCC

Control FFPE Blocks

We screen thousands of FFPE samples to identify ones that are positive or negative for selected markers.

Biomarkers include:

  • EGFR Mutations (Exon 19, 21, Variants)
  • KRAS Mutations (G12A, G12C, G12D, G12, G12V, G12R, G12S)
  • PD-L1, PD-1 (IHC)
  • ALK, RET, ROS1 fusions
  • MSI (IHC)
  • Oncomine Precision Assay NGS panel)
