The Virtual Tumour Bank of the Cancéropôle Grand Sud-Ouest allows access to an inventory of the samples stored in each tumour bank of the Greate South-West region, of the University Hospital Centres and Cancer Centres of Bordeaux, Limoges, Montpellier, Nîmes and Toulouse.
These samples are collected from patients to confirm and accurately characterise their cancer diagnosis, and are therefore stored by the Biobank for diagnostic and/or therapeutic purposes. These samples can be used for scientific research pending that a number of conditions are met, including the absence of refusal from the person (in compliance with French regulations),. So far, the Biobank-Biological Ressources Center (BRC) is a major tool for cancer treatment and research.
We bring to your attention that samples' transfert remains subject to the acceptance of the biobank's committee and the contractualization terms of the establishment.
The information of this site is regularly updated following the expansion of the collection of each institution.
Hematological samples are available for consultation !
