Scientist.com Collaborates With UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre to Ensure Quality of Human Biosample Acquisition Globally

Jaa

Scientist.com, the world’s leading marketplace for outsourced scientific services, today announced that it is entering into a collaboration with the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre (UKCRC TDCC) to support the work of biobanks throughout the United Kingdom. The partnership will enable drug R&D to move forward more quickly by making large collections of prescreened human biological samples available for scientific research.

Through the new COMPLI™ feature, Scientist.com provides a simple, efficient and effective way of increasing the visibility and accessibility of biobanks’ human biological samples collections, which support new medical research. COMPLI™ introduces a common, comprehensive process and supply agreement supporting access to human biosamples. The goal is to enable biobanks to more easily connect with researchers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries and academia.

“Our goal is to put researchers who require human biological samples in touch with biobanks that have those samples in a platform that promotes compliance, efficiency, transparency, control and respect for the original donor,” stated Matt McLoughlin, Senior Director of Compliance at Scientist.com.

The UKCRC TDCC supports the work of biobanks by improving visibility of their human tissue samples for research purposes. The Centre helps biobanks maintain sustainability by providing access to consistent revenue streams that support the ongoing upkeep and maintenance necessary to keep biobanks compliant with ethical standards and governmental regulations.

“The aim is to enable biobanks throughout the UK to easily connect and work with Scientist.com’s large international customer base,” stated Philip Quinlan, Director of the UKCRC Tissue Directory and Coordination Centre. “The initiative should save time, reduce costs and improve compliance oversight.”
