BioServe Starts Multi-Center Sample Network

By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genomics services company BioServe said today that it has started a biosample repository network with several biomedical research institutions to provide customers with access to a large supply of samples for most major diseases.

The BioServe Network (BSN) will offer biosample access to BioServe's Global Biorepository and to biorepositories at its four BSN partners, including the Fox Chase Cancer Center, the Windber Research Institute, the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the Fairbanks Institute for Healthy Communities.

"Biosamples are an important research tool that can dramatically accelerate basic science, clinical research, and translational studies," BioServe President Rama Modali said in a statement.

BioServe noted that the BSN provides disclosure on where and how its samples were sourced, and said that the samples are collected using the highest standard operating protocols.
