Benefits For Companies
Major benefits for companies include:
(1) Submit unlimited sample requests
Company members can submit an unlimited number of sample requests each year. These are all posted on the platform, and directed to suitable biobanks both on and off the platform.
(2) Access a large, diverse network
Biosample Hub has a global network of around 40 Academic Biobanks. 100% of these biobanks want to work with industry because (a) this is the purpose of the platform and (b) membership is voluntary.
(3) Direct contact with the biobank of origin
This brings many benefits, including the full provenance data, access to scientific and clinical expertise, and access to subsequent services like tissue sectioning and staining. Contact with the biobank of origin is especially important for molecular diagnostics companies which need to comply with Regulation (EU) 2017/746 on IVD medical devices.
(4) Financial transparency
The platform is run by a not-for-profit company without any shareholders. Any financial surpluses are reinvested in the company. Any transactions between requester and provider must take place independently of the platform and no commission is charged.
(5) Freedom from contractual restrictions
No contract is required to use the platform, so no hassle and no contractual restrictions.
(6) A user-friendly platform
This platform has many innovative features to facilitate connection with suitable biobanks and it undergoes continuous development to improve performance. For details see the Platform Page.
