Improve Your Research With
Fresh Tissue Samples

We can collect fresh human tissue samples to meet your research project needs. We can obtain samples from healthy or diseased donors according to your specific requirements.

Fresh tissue samples are the best laboratory model available for living human tissue. Yet many researchers design their experiments and procedures using preserved or processed biospecimens, because they can’t reliably obtain fresh tissue samples.

The ability to rapidly and economically source fresh tissue samples has enabled some leading researchers to achieve more accurate results in much shorter times.

Example Fresh Tissue Sample Requests

Cutting edge life science research often requires very specific biospecimen collection criteria.

We have the expertise to help you formulate the exact specifications to match your needs.

With our network of providers, we have the resources to supply even the most difficult to find samples.

Our Network of Biospecimen Providers

We work with a worldwide network of biospecimen providers, including academic/hospital biobanks and a variety of other providers. We only work with biospecimen providers who meet our strict standards with regards to biospecimen quality and ethical compliance.

It is our priority to ensure that we can source all types of biospecimens. As a result, we are constantly looking to add new providers to our network. If you are a biospecimen provider, please contact us for more information about joining our network.
