Human biological samples sourcing:
Other diseases

Biological samples, or specimens, are widely used in R&D for drug development and diagnostics assay development.

Although many options exist to source common specimens, specific requirements, such as matching samples, conditioning status, or clinical requirements like mutations or population types can make sample sourcing dramatically time-consuming.

This is why Labtoo developed a tailor-made service to support Labs, Biotechs, Medtech, and Pharma companies in their procurement of samples.

Labtoo can be mandated in a fully customized mission to look for any type of human or non-human biospecimen, fresh tissues, Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE tissues), or frozen. We work with hospitals, biobanks, and CROs to look for the best samples according to specific needs, with all regulatory and legal requirements handled. 

As we do not use a catalog solution, our team will identify samples already in sample biobanks or collections, if possible, and compatible with the requirements of the project. A prospective clinical collection can also be started when necessary.

Types of Available Samples

  • Tissues
    • Fresh Tissues: after a biopsy, a pathologist can decide whether the tissue sample can be used for research. Labtoo can organize the conditioning and shipment of fresh diseased tissue in 24-48 hours after surgery.

    • Frozen Tissues (OCT et FF): similarly to fresh tissue, once the tissues are cleared for research, the clinical site can freeze and keep the frozen tissue samples at -80°C or in liquid nitrogen for ulterior use.

    • FFPE Tissues: Pathologist typically embed the biopsies and resections in paraffin. FFPE blocks of diseased tissues can be used later for research.

    • Adjacent Healthy Tissues: tumor resections typically include healthy adjacent diseased tissues during the process. This tissue can later be used for research and act as controls for diseased tissues.

  • Blood Derivatives
    • Plasma or Serum from sick patients
    • PBMC (Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells)
    • Whole Blood
    • Leukapheresis
  • Biofluids
    • Urine
    • Feces
    • Others

Typical Associated Clinical Data

    • Age
    • Gender
    • Ethnicity
    • Undergone Treatment
    • Medical Imaging
    • Positivity/Negativity for certain Infections
    • Other Data (upon request)

Our service identifies clinical sites capable of preparing and transferring a sample collection for a specific project.
