- Human Biospecimens
- For Researchers
- For Biospecimen Contributors
- For Patients
The procurement of biospecimens is considered a highly risky endeavor. One mistake in the compliance process and your entire program may be shut down. iSpecimen goes above and beyond to help ensure compliance.
iSpecimen will provide associated compliance documentation with specimens upon request.
The iSpecimen Partner Network includes a variety of healthcare providers and partners, each of which may have their own allowable specimen uses. Keeping track of these differences and ensuring proper specimen use is a major source of risk for researchers. iSpecimen tracks this information to ensure only specimens meeting these requirements are delivered. iSpecimen also vets researchers and their programs to ensure specimens only go to those with legitimate research or educational programs.
iSpecimen goes to great lengths to ensure a patient donor’s privacy is protected. Our technology automatically de-identifies patient data before we even receive it from our specimen partners, eliminating the PHI leakage that often happens with manual de-identification processes. Our technology undergoes regular, rigorous privacy and security audits to ensure it continues to protect the identity of patient donors and is impervious to hackers. All researchers are contractually bound to never try to re-identify patients, ever.
