Muscle Biopsy Freezing

Before beginning with biopsy collections, clinical sites can review the AGADA freezing SOP and video demonstration (video).

Thereafter, site personnel must complete a training quiz with 100 percent accuracy.
One to two weeks prior to the biopsy collection, AGADA will perform an online site assessment, following a checklist of required supplies and equipment that should be available at the site.
AGADA will provide training to on-site personnel before the first scheduled biopsy collection, as well as observe each biopsy collection to ensure that samples are processed correctly.
After the biopsy AGADA compiles a site follow up letter and a report for the study sponsor.
