Document Description
The Rodent Research-1 Biospecimen Storage Program (RR-1 BSP) dissections were successfully completed in April 2015, yielding 32 types of tissues from each frozen mouse carcass and over 3200 tissue aliquots from the forty RR-1 validation mice. The remaining carcasses were stored in a -80°C Biospecimen Storage Facility (BSF) freezer.

The 2nd round, or 2nd thaw, BSP dissection was performed in March 2016 to collect additional tissues from the carcasses for the Space Life and Physical Sciences (SLPS) BSP Principal Investigators (PIs) that were awarded the tissues since the first round dissection. Practice dissections were performed, but no verification tests using extra carcasses were performed specifically to check tissue quality prior to the second thaw dissections.
