Human Fat Pad Tissue, Frozen or RNALater

Human Infrapatellar Fat Pad (also known as Hoffa's Fat Pad)Tissue, Frozen or RNALater: Healthy Donor, Osteoarthritis (OA+) or Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA+)


Tissue Procurement: Human fat pad 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:   Infrapatellar fat pad tissue is aseptically dissected from surrounding tissues of the knee joint. Fat pad tissue 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.
