For Clinics and Doctors

Become a partner. Every biospecimen takes us one step closer to a deeper understanding of healthy and disease-state physiology, directly impacting and expanding the development of critical diagnostics and essential therapeutics.

Urgent Need for Biospecimens

With the advent of sophisticated molecular techniques like next generation sequencing (NGS) and multi-dimensional flow cytometry, the biomedical research community is able to capture an exquisite level of detail of healthy and disease states. Understanding exactly how much variation is “normal” and which differences define disease requires analyzing samples from a large number of individuals.

Which is why Audubon needs your help.

By partnering with Audubon, you can help your patients make a difference for the future management of their disease. All it takes is a small portion of tissue or biofluids.

Help your patients help others and partner with Audubon. Get started by contacting us.

Research We Support

We provide biospecimens for leading organizations, including the US National Cancer Institute (NCI) and US Center for Disease Control (CDC), top pharma and biotech companies, as well as small and mid-sized start-ups.

We strongly support the research of autoimmune disorders by providing specimens from Diabetes type 1 and 2, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease and many other conditions to leading industry, academic and governmental organizations.

With the increased incidence of viral outbreaks we are witnessing today, including the Covid-19 pandemic, samples from patients affected by infectious diseases are precious and an indispensable tool for the protection of public health. We are committed to provide such specimens and to support vaccine and therapeutic development.

Neurological disorders affect human wellbeing and quality of life on a global scale. By providing specimens from donors affected by such pathologies, we support the work of public and private institutions with the goal of identifying better biomarkers, revealing diseases’ molecular mechanisms and finding better treatments.
