RUCDR Infinite Biologics is the world’s largest university-based biorepository. The facility offers a complete and integrated selection of biological sample processing, analysis and biorepository services to government agencies, academic institutions, foundations and biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies within the global scientific community. RUCDR Infinite Biologics provides DNA, RNA and cell lines with clinical data to hundreds of research laboratories for studies on mental health and developmental disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, diabetes and digestive, liver and kidney diseases.
Dr. Andrew Brooks, Chief Operating Officer of RUCDR Infinite Biologics, said: “The combination of the ThunderBolts™ Cancer Panel and the RainDrop® Digital PCR System provide us with a solution for ultra-sensitive nucleic acid detection in tissue, FFPE, and plasma. RainDance offers us a unified platform that is central to our work with researchers globally, by extending the use of valuable samples and allowing us to extract critical insights from limited quantities of biomaterial.”
As a RainDance Center of Excellence, the team at RUCDR will act as a reference and best practices demonstration site, and will also provide fee-based lab services to other cancer researchers and collaborators who wish to run studies at RUCDR using RainDance products. In exchange, RainDance will collaborate with RUCDR for scientific validation studies and for the development of novel genomic content and applications.
