The Biospecimens Accessioning and Processing Core combines specimen accessioning, processing, nucleic acid extraction, electronic biospecimen tracking, and storage and shipping services in a highly integrated core laboratory vital to the basic, translational and epidemiological research programs of Mayo Clinic researchers.

In addition to supporting individual investigators, the core laboratory also provides key infrastructure needed to create, grow and maintain biorepositories, which are essential resources for individualized medicine research at Mayo Clinic.

The Biospecimens Accessioning and Processing Core, co-directed by Mine S. Cicek, Ph.D., and W. Edward Highsmith Jr., Ph.D., is also a shared resource of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center.
