The outcome of your research is directly linked to the quality of the used biospecimen. In order to reflect the molecular reality, the biospecimen quality benefits from our standardized sampling by Indivumed study nurses and Indivumed trained personnel.
This includes fresh-frozen tissue, FFPE samples, plasma, serum, and urine, as well as prospective collection of fresh tissue.
Multi-omics Grade biospecimens are collected by our trained study nurses directly in the operating room, ensuring excellent sample quality with the lowest ischemia time possible. Mutation characterized samples (for example, via NGS), matched samples (metastasis, adjacent normal, and liquids), and comprehensive clinical follow-up data allow you to excel in your research and development of personalized medicine.
Alongside, we collect and offer Standard Grade biospecimens from our clinical pathology network, as well as external sources. These samples are most suitable for high-throughput validation of diagnostic tests and platforms.
In collaboration with a continuously expanding oncology network, Indivumed has established a unique high-quality cell-free plasma biobank that is exclusively focused on collecting longitudinal plasma samples from cancer patients. This allows the isolation of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) from pre- and post-treatment plasma samples. The high quality is ideal for biomarker development, therapy monitoring, detection of early drug resistance, and better understanding of the drug’s mechanism of action.
