The timing for tissue procurement can be complicated. Factors like the patient's general health, surgical status, and other circumstances will affect when a patient is authorized to have the tissue removed. When deciding what is the best time to schedule your procedure, you should consider the following: 

  • Is the patient stable?
  • s the procedure necessary for the patient's long-term health?
  • Is the tissue from a living donor required to help the patient's recovery?
  • Is the tissue from a living donor required to help the patient's recovery?
  • Does the procedure have any other implications for the patient?
  • Does the patient have a family member who might be a good donor?

Many people have the misconception that a tissue procurement center is a hospital, but this isn't true. They are typically located in hospitals, but they aren't associated with them. A tissue procurement center will typically provide patients with free or discounted services. A benefit of using a tissue procurement center as opposed to buying tissue on your own is that you could get better quality and specimens for less money.

There are a few different options for tissue procurement, but the most common is organ donation. People who die from brain-related diseases often have their organs donated. Other options include purchasing tissue from an individual or group and selling it to clients. Additionally, if you don't want to buy or sell tissue, you can raise funds to purchase your own samples that you can use in a variety of ways.
