Standard Operating Procedures

The NCI’s Early Detection Research Network is developing a number of standard operating procedures (SOP) for assays, methods, and protocols for collection and processing of biological samples, and other reference materials to assist investigators to conduct experiments in a consistent, reliable manner. These SOPs are established by the investigators of the Early Detection Research Network to maintain constancy throughout the Network. These SOPs represent neither a consensus, nor are the recommendations of NCI.

Ovarian Blood SOP

This is the EDRN recommended Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the collection and processing of blood biospecimens for screening of ovarian cancer.

Pancreas Blood SOP

This is the EDRN recommended Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the collection and processing of blood for pancreatic analysis.

Pancreas Cyst Fluid SOP

This is the EDRN recommended Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the collection of fluid from cysts for pancreatic screening of biospecimens.
