Human hepatitis- and HIV-positive biospecimens

Through our partners, we offer fresh human biospecimens from patients with hepatitis and HIV for research purposes. With samples from chronic and acute HAV, HBV, HCV as well as HIV I or II patients, our partners can provide tissues, blood, urine, sputum and other biofluids, as well as derivatives from these sample types.

Providing guaranteed compliance to international guidelines and strict adherence to local and international ethical regulations, our partners obtain samples directly from the original source with all biospecimens undergoing strict quality control prior to shipment. All collection sites are accessible for customer audits whereupon all on site documents and SOPs can be scrutinised. Samples can be delivered across Europe within 24 hours as per customer requirements.

Benefits of using these biospecimens

• To identify and group individuals more or less likely to respond to specific drugs or therapy types in precision medicine
• Identify and group individuals to determine which form of treatment is appropriate for different disease stages in precision medicine
• Aid development of novel vaccines or small molecule therapies to cure disease
• Develop screening tests to detect biomarkers associated with certain sub-types or stages of the disease for earlier and more accurate diagnoses
