Pitt Biospecimen Core

PBC re-opens (effective June 15, 2020)

The Pitt Biospecimen Core will be opening for services on June 15th.  During the week of June 15th, we will prioritize collections which were already in place prior to the shutdown in March.  Project requests that were not started prior to the shutdown, will be processed in the order in which they were received starting the week of June 22nd.  Please contact Nicole Pistorius at pistoriusnd@upmc.edu with questions regarding the status of your project request.   
The Research Histology lab will also be open and accepting projects. For histology questions or concerns, please contact Tony Green, greenag@upmc.edu or researchhistology@upmc.edu.


Each of our PBC Lab sites will have signage posted with instructions for customers and new workflow disinfection and safety practices. 


We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate new work practices and deal with short staffing and training needs.


We are happy to be coming back and anxious to serve you once again on site!
