Important Notes on SOPs

Some important notes on these SOPs:

  1. The names of specific institutions, vendors, people, email addresses, phone numbers, and geographic locations have been removed in these documents.  Internal revision information relevant during the SOP development process has also been removed, as this information does not govern the biobanking operation.
  2. Brand names of supplies and reagents were retained.
  3. PAXgene® Tissue is the tissue preservation method utilized in these SOPs. Other tissue preservation methods are not described in these SOPs but users may want to substitute their own tissue preservation method(s) of choice.
  4. The Informed Consent templates provided herein were developed as initial resources that were then adapted by the Biospecimen Source Sites to accommodate their own existing processes and procedures. These templates are not the exact consent forms being used at the Biospecimen Source Sites.
  5. Since the Informed Consent Verification Forms were site-specific, one representative form was made generic (removing site name throughout the form, including the title).
