BioStorage Technologies Partners with Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center in Breast Cancer Research Initiative
Date:1/6/2009

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center in Indianapolis has partnered with BioStorage Technologies, Inc. (BST) for secure, compliant storage of donated tissue specimens. BST will store a third of the tissue bank's existing and future biological samples at its Indianapolis-based biorepository, including samples being collected during the tissue bank's upcoming breast tissue donation event this Saturday, January 10, 2009.

Currently, there are few annotated collections of normal tissue available for scientific discovery in breast cancer. To combat this shortage, the Komen Tissue Bank primarily focuses on banking specimens of healthy breast tissue from women of all ages and making them available for cancer research. By collecting samples from women with and without breast cancer, researchers will be able to determine the differences between these populations, which could lead to a better understanding of the disease. Samples taken from women without the disease are especially helpful because there are few collections of so-called "normal" specimens. The tissue bank will ultimately give researchers valuable and unprecedented research data.

"These tissue donations provide pivotal support to researchers that could potentially lead to lifesaving treatments for women around the world," said Jill Henry, Komen Tissue Bank's Chief Operating Officer. "BioStorage's expertise in sample management, particularly temperature-controlled storage, will be instrumental in preserving the integrity of these valuable specimens for present and future research initiatives."

"The Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) Tissue Bank at the IU Simon Cancer Center will serve as an invaluable resource for the cancer research community," said Dr. F. John Mills, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer of BioStorage Technologies. "We are extremely proud of the role
