The OMRF Biorepository is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), which is the leading biorepository accreditation and proficiency agency (CAP accreditation #9418302). CAP compliance requires detailed documentation of all processes and procedures and rigid adherence to extraordinarily high standards, ensuring sample integrity and downstream experimental reproducibility. Please see the Biorepository website for a full description of the facilities, services, and collections.


OMRF Translational Informatics Resources

The OMRF Translational Informatics group provides data management for the OMRF Biorepository and Clinical Data Storage facility and curates the data for use in research. With the appropriate permissions and authorizations, these data are made available to investigators to develop and test new hypotheses.


Oklahoma Blood Institute (OBI)

OBI has developed a web-based interface for recruiting OBI donors to participate in clinical and translational research. Through the Clinical Resources Core, OSCTR investigators can use this resource to recruit individuals with common health conditions as well as healthy controls. The OBI is the ninth largest non-profit blood center in the US, with more than 125,000 donors annually. OBI also manages Oklahoma’s only marrow donor registry site and one of only 25 cord blood centers worldwide.
