Contribute Biological Samples to Research Programs
Every year, billions of human biospecimens are thrown into the trash after diagnostic testing is complete or stored indefinitely in biobanking facilities. However, these solid tissues, biofluids, and cells hold incredible value for medical research. iSpecimen partners with hospitals, labs, biobanks, Health Information Exchanges, blood centers, and other clinical institutions to make their lab discards – or banked biological samples – available to scientists and researchers. We also work with our partners to source prospective collections, if they are equipped to do so.
iSpecimen partners receive everything they need when they join the iSpecimen Partner Program – including free technology, compliance support, lab training, and SOPs. Our turnkey program makes it easy for healthcare facilities to increase their revenue by repurposing their specimens into research. Watch our supplier animation video below.
iSpecimen’s partners receive a recurring revenue stream and direct cost reimbursement for each sample sourced and delivered to iSpecimen or our customers.

iSpecimen brings unique technology to the clinical laboratory that makes it easy to identify the patients and specimens that researchers need. This same technology that we use to find both biological samples for our customers can be used by your internal researchers for their own programs. Direct access to a ready supply of biospecimens saves researchers time and money and makes your institution more competitive for grants and talent.
Compliance management is an integral part of the iSpecimen Partner Program. iSpecimen’s technology enables full compliance with HIPAA, the Common Rule, and IRB requirements, as well as any applicable hospital policies on consent and sample usage. We ensure that only the specimens that are compliant with federal, state, and institutional regulations are released for research.
