The Laboratory

All QUOD samples (blood, urine and tissue) are processed, stored and prepared for distribution in our laboratory at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

The laboratory is equipped with many machines including a tissue processing machine, an embedding centre, two microtomes, microscopes and a tissue slide staining facility. All of these play a part in creating different sample types to broaden the possibilities of different research projects whilst maintaining the high quality of the samples.

Distribution takes place from Oxford and is subject to approval by the QUOD Steering Committee which takes place during the application process.
