Research Donors is an HTA-licensed, London-based company dedicated to providing research organisations in the UK and internationally with a wide range of fresh human blood biospecimens. From its integrated blood donation and processing centre, Research Donors collects, processes, tests and rapidly delivers precisely defined and controlled human blood samples for research use.
For many research applications the speed of sample processing is critical. Research Donors are able to deliver blood samples across Europe on the day following venepuncture. In the UK, same day delivery may be possible depending on location.
Research Donors collects its samples from a large, diverse pool of healthy, paid volunteers. All samples are collected under a comprehensive informed consent that explicitly permits the use of blood samples and derivatives in a wide range of research applications, including commercial research and research involving genetic testing. All samples are tested for a range of infectious diseases prior to release.
