Sample Processing

Consistent sample processing is critical for biomarker-driven studies, as biomarker assays are highly vulnerable to pre-analytical variables. At Precision, one way we safeguard the integrity of your biomarker assay data is through the use of robust, standardized sample processing procedures that are strictly followed at every study site and Precision lab around the globe. In addition, we ensure rapid turnaround times, and can process PBMCs within 24 to 30 hours from draw.

Sample processing with biomarker assays in mind

Robust standardization and efficient logistical operations support the generation of high-quality biomarker data
Precision’s sample processing capabilities include
  • Custom kit development and collection
  • PBMC isolations, cryopreservation, characterization, and same-day or next-day processing worldwide
  • Blood fractionation for isolation of serum, plasma, and multiple cell types
  • DNA/RNA extraction and quantity, quality, and purity assessment of cell subsets
  • Cell-line immortalization and expansion with >97% expansion rate
  • Custom processing and characterization studies
  • Standardized SOPs for laboratory services, customizable on demand
The Precision laboratory network ensures quality

With labs in every major region around the world, Precision can provide rapid and consistent sample processing wherever your study site is located. Samples are processed the same way in every site to ensure quality and data comparability, with virtual Sample Inventory Management provided with our proprietary QuartzBio platform.

“By clearly aligning both procedures and expectations, we have been able to streamline sample collection and processing, as well as help sponsors and sites troubleshoot any issues.”
