The NASA Biological Institutional Scientific Collection (NBISC) at Ames Research Center stores non-human biospecimens from spaceflight investigations and associated ground controls. The biospecimens are collected and made available for request.
NASA's Ames Life Sciences Data Archive (ALDSA) has been shipping non-human samples to investigators since 1995, fostering research into the effects spaceflight may have on bone, muscle, development, the cardiovascular system, and on regulatory physiology, to name a few.
