NDRI specializes in meeting researchers' needs for human organs and tissues by creating customized recovery protocols that can be used for an array of experimental techniques. NDRI has a variety of ocular tissues available, including:
Prospective Recoveries: NDRI works with eye bank partners to obtain consent and recover ocular tissue from donors for biomedical research. Recovered tissues have a post mortem to preservation interval of 14 to 24 hours and can be delivered to researchers within 36 to 72 hours.
Ocular Histological Sections Project: This is an invaluable resource for investigators who are unable to process whole globes or who prefer to receive only specific sections of relevance. An experienced ophthalmologist/histopathologist processes all eyes, and provides detailed pathology reports, including comprehensive medical/social history data, for each donor.
