Beginning February 1, 2021, Biorepository Shared Resource will be using a new online system for requesting and processing core service requests. The software, Stratocore PPMS, has been implemented in 12 other UC Davis research core facilities and has over 2,000 registered UC Davis and external users.

Each core customer (each lab member) will require a PPMS account to submit orders beginning Feb 1.

Instructions for requesting a PPMS account can be found here.

For questions or concerns about the PPMS implementation, please contact or visit

Ordering process

Follow the Guidelines for Submitting Wet Specimens to the CCB (PDF) and complete the Specimen Submission Form (PDF) and attach it to the specimens before dropping them off at the Front Desk of the Path Building.

The Biorepository staff receives automatic email notification of requests submitted through the Shared Resources website. Database and Laboratory Information System (LIS) searches are performed diligently to ensure prompt completion of request. Once completed, the researcher is notified via email for pick-up and billed via the website.

Please login and create a secure profile to submit a request.
