iSpecimen Unveils Online Marketplace for Human Biospecimens

Lexington, MA – June 13, 2017 – iSpecimen® today launched the iSpecimen Marketplace – an online, data-rich platform that connects life science researchers who need human biospecimens to the healthcare organizations that have them. Using a powerful, multi-faceted search platform, the marketplace enables medical researchers to intuitively search millions of available human biospecimens and solves one of the research industry’s biggest challenges – how to compliantly obtain quality biospecimens in a cost-effective manner. Through the marketplace, researchers gain instant access to iSpecimen’s growing, federated network of healthcare providers and biobanks, giving network participants (specimen providers) the opportunity to more broadly contribute to medical research as well as their bottom line.
