Tissue Solutions Psoriasis Samples
We can provide biopsies from lesions and normal skin from the same donor in either fresh or frozen formats. All samples are fully anonymised and only donor data pertinent to the disease will accompany the samples such as age, gender, smoking, drinking and recreational drug habits, relatives with psoriasis, date of on-set, history of disease, severity of the disease, sampling site of each biopsy, history of treatment, other auto-immune disease, other co-morbidities such as diabetes, depression, etc.
