Feasibility Studies and Prospective Collections
We are able to look beyond our established network in order to meet your requirements; We can conduct a feasibility study to identify either a specialist collection of banked samples or clinical groups willing to carry out a prospective collection on your behalf.
We deal with all the paperwork and logistics associated with a prospective collection, saving both you and the clinical groups precious time. We can often also put you in direct contact with the clinicians to help promote future collaborations in translational research.
Because we understand your scientific needs, we can ask the right questions to find the right samples, allowing you to maximise the value of the information you obtain.
As we are based in the UK, we often advise our clients on the Human Tissue Authority regulations and the UK ethical approval process. We can help with preparing realistic protocols and designing patient information & consent sheets that conform to the National Research Ethics Service (NRES) guidelines. We are flexible in our approach and will help you with as much or as little of this as you need.
