Frozen tissue sample kit locations
Tumor tissue samples submitted to the BMD Repository can be crucial keys to researchers looking for genetic causes of cancers. Because this type of submission happens at a very emotional time for owners, we have instituted our “Just Freeze It” campaign to make things simpler and easier at this difficult time. IF YOUR DOG IS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER, JUST FREEZE IT. This is truly all that you and your vet need to know to submit a tumor tissue sample to the Repository. Collect a sample and JUST FREEZE IT. It can remain frozen until you and your vet have gathered all the information necessary to ship it to the Repository safely and when you are emotionally ready to do so.
