Human biospecimens from rare kidney disease donors

Cambridge Bioscience has partnered with East West Biopharma (EWB) to provide researchers access to human biospecimens from donors with rare kidney diseases, Donors include those with polycystic kidney disease, hydronephrosis, glomerulonephritis and those with recipient transplant complications. 

With delivery within 24 hours after sample collection, these high quality biospecimens are ideal for IHC applications where labile biomarkers are the research focus.
