More on Collection:
The thoracic collection is the largest in the Biobank Côte d’Azur, including tissue from the lung, pleura and mediastinum.
The dermatological collection essentially consists of melanoma specimens. Most of the samples originate from mucocutaneous melanoma with some ocular melanomas.
The thyroid collection is the oldest established in the Biobank Côte d’Azur. It was decided not to limit the collection of tumor tissues but also to collect non-tumoral pathologies (inflammatory, and autoimmune, benign, pre-neoplastic and dystrophic).
The head and neck collection includes upper aerodigestive tract (UAT) and non-UAT samples. Most of the samples are of tumor origin, but the collection also includes inflammatory or infectious lesions, and benign tumors.
