Remnant Diagnostic Specimens

Advance diagnostic development with high-quality, IRB-approved, laboratory remnants and diagnostic samples.
Remnant and residual specimens are specimens that would otherwise be discarded in the course of standard medical practice.  These specimens are utilized under a waiver of consent provision, with de identified data – and can be used to generate preliminary data for IVD Development submissions and more. A cost-effective solution to accelerate your research.
