Human Cartilage Tissue, Frozen or RNALater

Human Cartilage Tissue, Frozen or RNALater: Healthy Donor, Osteoarthritis (OA+) or Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA+)


Tissue Procurement: Human cartilage tissue is collected from cadaveric donors within 48 hours of death or as surgical specimens from a relevant procedure. The tissue is harvested from the knee joint from both clinically “healthy, normal” donors and from those diagnosed with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. Proper consent and serological information is obtained on all specimens.


Tissue Processing: Cartilage is aseptically dissected from all surfaces of the knee joint. Cartilage slices are either flash frozen in liquid nitrogen and stored at -80oC or preserved with RNALater solution to protect RNA/DNA and then stored at -80oC. Frozen samples are shipped overnight with dry ice. Each sample is approximately 1g.
