Brief Summary:
This is a bio repository of blood specimens from subjects with different Hematological disorders.

Condition or disease
Hematological Disorders

Detailed Description:

There has been a marked increase in our knowledge of Blood Disorders in the last decade. Much of this knowledge comes from examining blood specimens from patients and subjecting these samples to red cell, plasma, serum or DNA analyses. We propose to set up a Hematology biobank, which will include patient histories, their medical progress and a linked but de-identified bank of blood samples. This will enable us to have a large database, which can be used to learn more about these diseases.

The Hematology biobank will use whole blood, red blood cells, plasma, serum and/or DNA.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Biobank [ Time Frame: 5 years ]
    To have specimens available for IRB approved studies


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Whole blood samples will be processed fresh or frozen and stored in cryo vials at -80°C for future isolation of DNA. DNA isolation will be done using commercially available kits such as Applied Biosystems' "DNA Isolation from Fresh and Frozen Blood, Tissue Culture" http://tools.lifetechnologies.com/content/sfs/manuals/cms_041387.pdf Plasma needed for biomarkers analysis we be obtained from whole blood samples. Whole blood will be spun down, plasma and sediment will be separated and stored in cryo vials at -80°C. Red cells and platelets will be stored at 4C. Red cell hemolysate may be stored at 4C or stored in cryo vials.
