Our Value Proposition

Advantages

Increased visibility

More Info

Biosample Hub actively reaches out to biotech companies around the world. So we can bring you into contact with many biotechs you will not have encountered before.

Direct contact with biotechs

More Info

On the Biosample Hub platform companies and biobanks can find each other and get in direct contact. Biosample Hub staff will also introduce you when needed. For example, if a biotech company submits a sample request and we think you can help, then we will let you know. Direct communication brings many benefits – it is easier to make arrangements like setting up prospective collections. It is also easier to understand each other’s needs. 

No contract is required

More Info

The biobank does not need to sign any contract with Biosample Hub. So there is less hassle. Furthermore, there are no contractual restrictions. You can interact freely with biotech companies on the platform.

Sample traceability

More Info

We put biobanks and companies in direct contact. So, the provider knows the identity of the end-user, and this facilitates full sample traceability. 

Financial transparency

More Info

A not-for-profit company runs the platform and it has no shareholders. So, we reinvest any financial surpluses into the company. Any transactions between the company and the biobank take place independently of the platform. Furthermore, Biosample Hub does not charge any commission.

Educational benefits

More Info

Our platform is full of useful resources, including detailed analysis of all the sample requests we receive. This helps you to plan your collection strategy to meet the needs of biotech companies. We also provide webinars on relevant subjects.

Biosample Hub provides an essential missing link between biotech researchers and medical sites/non-commercial biobanks – as a biotech scientist, I appreciate how it gives me access to a much wider range of potential biosamples vs. the usual mix of commercial providers

Biosample Hub has been very helpful in reaching out to biorepositories around the world.
