Protocol Specific Banking
Along with biobanking under our general banking protocol, we offer our patient eligibility screening, consenting, biospecimen collecting, biospecimen handling, biospecimen processing, clinical data annotation and long-term sample storage services.
All collected biospecimens and data for your protocol will be kept on hold for only your use.
Our biobank is continuously growing in number of samples collected each day.
Our collection protocols are continuously adapting to the changing demands of clinical research. Our biobank started with the collection of plasma, serum, buffy coat and urine specimens. To serve the contemporary clinical research field, we expanded our collection to include additional samples types such as plasma for cell free DNA (cfDNA) (liquid biopsy), Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC), saliva, Bronchoalveolar lavage and other sample types.
- Buffy Coat
- Whole Urine
- Urine Supernatant
- Urine Pellet
- Biopsy Cores
Our clinic spans across 6 hospital sites and off-site clinic locations, and it encompasses 15 clinics and 4 outpatient blood collection laboratories.
With a few thousand patients seen at our sites every month, our clinic facility is constantly improving to better accommodate our growing patient population. Our team fosters relationships with medical practitioners, patient flow coordinators as well as laboratory technicians at these sites to recruit participants for our research initiative.
Collection Time Points
We consent and collect at multiple time points throughout a participant’s standard of care. Below is a general overview of the time points we follow.
