The procurement of biospecimens can be a highly risky endeavor, especially when it comes to the compliance process. The iSpecimen Marketplace™ efficiently and thoroughly manages critical aspects of compliance at each stage of biospecimen procurement, helping to mitigate risks and instill confidence.
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 help ensure that only specimens meeting these requirements are delivered. iSpecimen also vets researchers and their programs to help ensure that 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 can happen with manual de-identification processes. Our technology undergoes regular, rigorous privacy and security audits to help 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.
