Biospecimens in personalized medicine are a cornerstone for its future development and establishment as a real-life clinical practice. And yet, the crucial role of biosamples and the process of their ethical collection are not well understood. As a biospecimen provider, we consider it part of our mission to educate and raise awareness on this topic. …Read More
Medical professionals support biobanking by identifying, informing, and protecting the patients willing to donate biosamples to research. Biospecimen procurement relies strongly on all medical staff involved in the process of patient engagement and correct biosample collection. It is therefore, extremely important to understand, appreciate and raise awareness of the importance medical professionals have in…Read More
One of the main applications of human-derived biosamples in biomedical research is in the discovery and validation of new biomarkers. This is especially true for the oncology field, where biospecimens support biomarkers development from the discovery stage through validation, and ultimately during implementation into diagnostics and choice of targeted therapy by providing scientists and clinicians…Read More
The observation that biobanking is attracting investors and media attention strongly confirms the critical role of the field in the modern biotech and biopharma industries and global healthcare advancements.
