Marketplace for Sample Providers
Accelerate research, advance healthcare, and recoup operating costs by transferring specimens to researchers
Each year, healthcare organizations discard leftover biofluids, solid tissue, and cells after clinical testing. Many also have amassed extensive collections of samples hidden away in biobanks. And most have access to philanthropic patients willing to give samples just to help research.
But most of these valuable biospecimens never make it into the hands of researchers who need them. Our revolutionary iSpecimen Marketplace® changes this, connecting you with researchers who need access to your patients or specimens—and providing your institution with a sustainable revenue source.
Contribute in Three Easy Steps
Joining the iSpecimen Partner Network and contributing biospecimens is extremely simple:
an introductory meeting to learn more about the process.
our partner agreement and complete our supplier audit.
your data to iSpecimen—we’ll do all the work to connect it to the Marketplace.
As an iSpecimen Partner Network Member You Can:
Connect with our worldwide network of pre-qualified research customers and enjoy a sustainable revenue and cost-recovery stream from your remnant or collected-for-research samples, whether banked or prospectively collected.
Support the discovery of new diagnostics, therapeutics, and vaccines beyond the walls of your institution. Everybody wins—your organization, medical researchers, and the patients whose lives will be saved or enhanced.
The iSpecimen platform manages compliance at every step, ensuring your patients’ privacy and security are protected. No protected health information (PHI) leaves your custody, and only qualified researchers can access your specimens.
Seize Rewarding Opportunities
By connecting providers with researchers who need specimens, the iSpecimen Marketplace is creating rewarding opportunities for healthcare organizations, including hospitals, commercial labs, biorepositories, clinical trial sites, blood centers, and health information exchanges.
Meeting Critical Biospecimen Demand
Over 80% of researchers report being limited by a lack of access to human biospecimens. Yet, over 3 billion samples are discarded yearly. The problem, then, is not inventory, but the lack of a connecting element. iSpecimen is the missing link.
Let us handle it through our Marketplace Onsite program. iSpecimen will fund a part-time employee at your institution to field requests, submit proposals, and distribute specimens on your behalf.
