- Human Biospecimens
- For Researchers
- For Biospecimen Contributors
- For Patients
iSpecimen was founded to address a critical challenge: how to connect life science researchers who need human biospecimens with the billions of specimens available in healthcare organizations worldwide. Our ground-breaking iSpecimen Marketplace solves this problem, reinventing the biospecimen procurement process to accelerate medical discovery.
Researchers who require biospecimens
Of researchers report limiting research due to lack of access to and quantity of specimens
Of researchers report limiting research due to lack of specimen quality
Specimens banked in 800 U.S. biorepositories
Healthcare encounters yearly with patients in the U.S. willing to donate specimens to research
Clinical specimens collected and discarded yearly in the U.S. alone
Our revolutionary iSpecimen Marketplace allows life science researchers to search for the precise patients and biospecimens they need from our global network of healthcare organizations. Everyone benefits:
iSpecimen was founded by pathologists who were constantly asked by scientists to manually search their clinical lab to find samples for research. Realizing there had to be a better way, they developed the technology and processes at the heart of the iSpecimen Marketplace. We continue to build on this foundation, creating value for all participants.
