NIDDK Central Repositories

The NIDDK IBDGC currently collects whole blood for DNA and serum isolation. These biospecimens are stored at the NIDDK Central Repositories.

  • DNA, the Genetics Repository: the Rutgers University Cell and DNA Repository
  • Serum, the Biosample Repository: Fisher Bioservices, Inc.
  • Datasets, the Data Repository: RTI International

Access to DNA and serum samples and de-identified data are available to the scientific community; and can be acquired following procedures established by the NIDDK for its central genetics and data repositories.
