The Best Results Come from the Best Samples

Biospecimens contain vast amounts of information that can advance clinical research, but an important prerequisite to successful use of genetic information in drug development is the appropriate collection and storage of biospecimens and related DNA samples from all clinical trials.

Storing DNA samples allows for analysis during and/or after a clinical study is finished. Biorepositories of clinical samples with proper informed consent can answer regulatory questions of safety and efficacy, and clarify unexpected outcomes during trials.

We work with clients to design biorepository and sample logistics solutions that enable high quality pharmacogenomics studies. Clinical sites can receive training in sample collection and handling with seamless shipping to our biorepository facility in Research Triangle Park, NC. Once samples arrive at our facility, they are entered into a state-of-the-art LIMS system, which tracks samples from receipt and accessioning through extraction and purification, ending with storage in the biorepository. Samples are maintained in optimal conditions at our cutting edge facility which complies with U.S. FDA GLP and ISBER Best Practice guidelines.
