Bioespecimen collections (prospective, clinical remnants and banked)

Biospecimens are collected from donors for patient monitoring, care, and research studies. They have helped many medical advances such as those for cancer, heart disease, and AIDs.

Biospecimen Management includes the collection, processing, and storage of specimens such as blood, urine, and/or tissue.

Biospecimens are crucial in advancing medical, genomic, and biological research, enabling scientists to study diseases, understand physiological processes, and develop new treatments.

Biospecimen collection is a fundamental step in biomedical and scientific research, contributing to advancements in understanding health and disease, and facilitating the development of innovative medical treatments and interventions.

Our Biobank

What are biorepositories and why are they important? Biorepositories are “libraries” in which biospecimens are stored for clinical or research purposes. These biospecimens are frequently annotated with information such as emographic or clinical data about the patient from whom the biospecimen was removed.

Eminat Research Group has a large selection of biospecimen in multiple therapeutical areas and diverse types of specimens like blood, urine, saliva, sputum, cerebrospinal fluid, and stools.

The goal of our Biobank is to provide samples for different types of studies. Many of the studies will aim to better understand how a person’s genes (DNA) may influence overall health and wellness. For example, some studies will focus on identifying genetic changes that might affect cancer risk.

Samples of Respiratory Infectious Diseases, STIs, COVID, and Influenza

Our samples include a variety of biological sample types, such as:

Oncology Collection

Our oncology collection includes a variety of types of biological samples, such as:

  • Whole Blood: We collect whole blood samples from patients diagnosed with cancer, which provide a complete representation of blood elements, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, as well as soluble biomarkers associated with cancer.
  • Plasma and Serum: We maintain plasma and serum samples obtained from cancer patients, which are rich in circulating biomarkers such as proteins, metabolites, and nucleic acids, which can be used to study disease progression, treatment response, and prognosis prediction.
  • Buffy Coat: We collect samples from the buffy coat, which contains a high concentration of white blood cells, including lymphocytes and monocytes, which play an important role in the immune response against cancer and can be used to study cancer immunology.

Dermatology Collection

These samples are essential for research and the development of diagnostic and treatment strategies for these skin conditions that affect the quality of life of millions of people worldwide.

Our dermatology collection includes a variety of types of biological samples, such as:

  • Skin Biopsies: We collect skin biopsy samples obtained from patients with dermatitis, psoriasis, and other skin diseases, which provide detailed information on the pathology and histology of these conditions.
  • Blood Samples: We maintain peripheral blood samples from patients with dermatitis and psoriasis, which can be used to study the immune response and inflammation associated with these diseases.
  • Skin Tissues: We collect skin tissue samples obtained from patients with chronic hand dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, and irritant dermatitis, which are used to study the inflammatory response and barrier dysfunction associated with these conditions.

FFPE blocks

FFPE blocks are an invaluable tool for a variety of applications in medical and scientific research, including:

  • Histopathological Studies: FFPE blocks are commonly used in histopathological studies for the diagnosis and classification of diseases based on microscopic tissue observation.
  • Molecular Analysis: The preservation of nucleic acids in FFPE blocks makes them a valuable source of material for molecular analyses such as genomic sequencing, PCR, and in situ hybridization.
  • Biomarker Discovery: FFPE blocks are used to identify specific biomarkers associated with diseases, enabling a better understanding of pathophysiology and the development of new diagnostic and treatment strategies.

In our biobank, we are committed to ensuring the quality of our FFPE blocks. Our team of pathologists and specialized technicians conducts rigorous quality controls to verify the integrity and representativeness of the samples stored in the FFPE blocks.

Data Associated with Biological Samples

We also offer a wide range of associated data that complement and enrich scientific research. This data may include clinical, demographic, genetic, and other relevant information that is collected and stored ethically and in accordance with privacy regulations.

Types of Available Data:

  • Clinical Information: This includes medical diagnoses, medical histories, laboratory test results, past and current treatments, and any other relevant information about the patient’s health.
  • Demographic Data: This encompasses characteristics such as age, sex, ethnic origin, geographical location, and any other demographic factor that may be relevant to the study. We recognize the importance of racial diversity in scientific research. Our collection of biological samples includes Caucasians, African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans. This racial diversity in our samples enables more inclusive research and represents a valuable source of data for understanding genetic variability and risk factors associated with various diseases in different populations.
  • Genetic Data: This can include genetic test results, genetic profiles, genetic variants associated with the disease, and any other genetic information that may be relevant to the research.
  • Environmental and Lifestyle Data: These include factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity, diet, exposure to environmental contaminants, and other environmental and lifestyle factors that may influence health.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control

We provide a set of procedures intended to ensure that new sites adhere to a defined set of quality criteria or meet the requirements.

Quality control can be defined as “part of quality management focused on fulfilling quality requirements.” While quality assurance relates to how a process is performed or how a product is made, quality control is more the inspection aspect of quality management.

EMINAT RESEARCH GROUP’s team of professionals provides QA and QC services for different institutions and fellow Investigators with a Sponsor audit or an FDA inspection.

We also provide consulting services when an FDA 483 form or warning needs to be responded to accurately and effectively.
