We display extremely specific patient and specimen information, such as medical conditions, tests and test results, processing and storage conditions, country of collection, and much more through the iSpecimen Marketplace.
Rapid turnaround times
Research today often calls for serum or plasma that has been processed within two to four hours of collection. We often can deliver these specimens within hours, depending on proximity to a provider site.
iSpecimen also has access to double-spun plasma. Many researchers prefer plasma that has been processed in this manner because it further separates the platelets and white blood cells that may have remained following the first spin.
