Biorepository Specimen Request Capabilities

The UofL Infectious Diseases Biorepository was developed in 1996 by expert faculty from the University of Louisville Division of Infectious Diseases for the discovery of new pathogens and biomarkers. Managed through a secure clinical database, the Biorepository stores more than 70,000 human specimens linked to complete clinical data. Experts in the Biorepository also provide consultation and quick turnaround for the routine shipping of biological specimens to national and international health system leaders for research projects.
