The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology houses a collection of over ~100,000 samples of tissue, blood, and protein extracts preserved from amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, and fish. The majority of samples are associated with vouchers in the MVZ specimen collections. All cataloged tissues are frozen and stored in liquid nitrogen, although the original preservation methods may have been in RNALater, ethanol, or other buffer solutions.
