- Human Biospecimens

The traditional approach of sourcing human biospecimens for research from multiple vendors can be a time-consuming and costly process. iSpecimen changes the paradigm, offering a single source for finding exact specimen matches—format and type, inclusion and exclusion criteria, collection instructions, and storage and shipment requirements. We simplify procurement, so you can focus on your research.
The iSpecimen Marketplace streamlines specimen procurement by connecting researchers to the patients and specimens they desperately need—including remnant clinical or pathology samples, banked research samples, and prospective or custom research collections. Search by specimen type, disease state, patient demographics, laboratory tests and results, pathology data, and more.
Here are four ways the iSpecimen Marketplace benefits you:
iSpecimen supplies human tissue samples, biofluids, and hematopoietic cells from our vast, global network of healthcare partners, allowing simplified procurement through one centralized marketplace platform. Easily access millions of banked research specimens, archived pathology samples, and remnant clinical lab samples.
If your needs are not met by existing samples, iSpecimen can collect samples using your custom collection protocol. We match your specimen requirements to our vast network of collection sites, selecting the best sites to meet your needs, such as geographic location, patient populations, and compliance and legal requirements. If your requirements don’t match our existing sites’ capabilities, we can recruit sites and offer contracting services.
iSpecimen goes above and beyond with collection site training to ensure that all collections are sourced in accordance with your precise requirements. For custom collections, we offer kitting, sample collection, and specimen processing services and manage all site compliance and contracting for all custom collections.
iSpecimen simplifies compliance and contracting by managing both processes across our healthcare partner network. We ensure all research samples are collected under approved IRB/IEC protocols with informed consent and all clinical remnant samples are collected with informed consent, waiver of consent, or under a Non-Human Subject Research determination.
