Welcome to SLED | Sample Location and Enhanced Distribution CCTS Biobank

The CCTS Biobank has automated its operations to assist researchers in locating and gaining access to samples and data consented for sharing with other researchers.

This approach is unique in that it provides a sample request management system (locate, request, approve, distribute, and report) while allowing the data and samples to remain with and under the governance of the primary investigator.

Studies are being brought online as patient- and sample-related data, and patient consent declarations are made available electronically. Please check the CCTS Biobank website for additional sample and data information, and directions to process requests for access to additional inventory via email. (https://www.uth.edu/biobank/)

Locating Samples

Using SLED, researchers will be able to search for samples using a variety of criteria including potential sample availability, research data, patient demographics and diagnoses, and sample types.

Requesting Samples

SLED provides researchers and designated biobank personnel:

  • An online sample request form accepted by all participants
  • Electronic submission of the request form

NOTE: Please use Chrome or Firefox web browsers. We are currently investigating an issue with the search tool in Internet Explorer.
