Custom Study Design

biospecimen collection and custom Study Design

We work with iSpecimen Partner sites to collect, process, and ship biological specimens. Most biospecimens are shipped to iSpecimen and go through our QA process before being sent to researchers. We also offer additional processing services, such as DNA extraction.

When you require a custom collection of biofluid samples, iSpecimen Concierges are here to help. They can also help with study design, site selection, and compliance management, in addition to specimen collection, processing, and shipping.
