    Hello Kimberley and others. I have a large archive of guthrie cards obtained from HIV patients over the past 15 years that would be very useful for a range of genetic studies.

    Dear Carole,
    Thanks for sharing! You must have quite an archive! We've recently started up SiteFinder- a website dedicated to matching researchers with projects but no lab or samples with institutions who have access to patients, stored samples ect.

    Would you consider signing up for Site-Finder and sharing your archived samples?

    Check it out at:

    If you have any questions about Site Finder, send me a message

    Dear Kim

    Im afraid your links to above documents may need a fix. I can't get SOPs.

    Dear Ali,
    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. WE're working on fixing it and will hopefully have the DBS SOPs available for download in the next week.

    Best wishes,
