Biobanking is a rapidly evolving field that has become central to driving advancements in preclinical research and supporting drug discovery. Biobanks are repositories containing large collections of biological human samples, including tissue samples, blood, and DNA.1 These repositories provide scientists access to a vast array of biosamples for research, which are used to gain further insight…Read More
Biospecimens have been essential in biomarker discovery as far back as the 1980s. Biospecimen procurement is the systematic process of acquiring, storing, and managing biosamples for research for the advancement of personalized medicine and drug development, as shown in Figure 1. However, despite its importance, the process of biobanking, particularly prospective biospecimen collection, has been…Read More
Imagine a world where diseases can be prevented before they even occur, where medications are tailored specifically to each individual’s genetic makeup, and where new drugs are developed at an unprecedented rate. This future is quickly becoming a reality due to the rapid evolution in technologies the field of biospecimen procurement has witnessed over the…Read More
Tissue biobanking involves the collection, processing, storage, and study of biospecimens, such as human biofluids and solid tissue samples1. High biospecimen quality and collection of relevant patient data allow researchers and clinicians to tailor a personalized treatment for a given patient. Furthermore, biobanking allows researchers to assess differences by race and ethnicity for the patient…Read More
Introduction According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer accounted for nearly 10 million deaths worldwide in 2020 alone.1 This devastating disease can affect any part of the body, occurring when abnormal cells become dysregulated and begin to grow and spread uncontrollably. However, to fully recognize its burden and succeed in cancer research, we must…Read More
Biomarkers are essential tools in oncology research, allowing for early detection, diagnosis, and personalized cancer treatment.1 For this reason, driving innovation in biomarker discovery and validation is critical for developing targeted therapies to improve clinical outcomes. Here, we discuss the concept of biomarkers in the field of oncology and why they have been indispensable to the…Read More
Based on our yearly analysis of collection requests and projects, we noticed that plasma matched biosample sets were a considerable part of our work over the last year. At Audubon Bioscience, we work closely with our scientific partners to provide a personalized relationship by having specific collection methods based on their research needs, ensuring quality…Read More
