For Patients: Donating Human Tissue Samples For Research
Patients may donate samples of tissue during their medical care. Researchers can use these human tissue samples under two conditions. Firstly, the patient has informed consent. Secondly, clinical biospecimens can be used for research if they are surplus to diagnostic needs.
What Patients Expect
Biosample Hub Benefits The Biospecimen Donor
Improved Biobank Discoverability
Improved Sample Traceability
A central feature of the Biosample Hub platform is direct communication between biobanks and companies. Biobanks using the platform speak directly to end-users of human tissue samples. This communication improves sample tracking. As a result, the biobank can make sure about the appropriate use of their samples. Consequently, the biobank can fulfil its responsibility as a trusted custodian.
