Normal Control Samples

Reliable Healthy Donors / Normal Controls for Your Project Needs

Biospecimens available for procurement represent a wide variety of sample types including:

  • fresh collections of tissue and bone marrow
  • peripheral blood, urine, and saliva
  • inventory samples such as FFPE, PBMCs, plasma and serum

Over the past year we've worked on more than 500 normal projects with different research teams.  A recent article citing our samples was published detailing the importance of age matching samples for drug discovery, especially when seeking FDA approval.   You can access the article here.

Case Study

One of our current research partners is creating tools to map human health and needs access to a diverse set of clinical samples including healthy controls collected at multiple time points to mirror their diseased samples. The rst blood draw of their project required collection of samples from 5 Stage III and IV metastatic cancer patients during the washout period between chemotherapy and the start of the second-line PD1/PD-L1 therapy. The second draw was targeted for collection at their most recent available appointment after having received the PD1/PD-L1 therapy. The research team also wanted to exclude patients with a known history of chronic infection or with any autoimmune disease.

The samples both healthy and diseased were collected and processed in Folio Conversant’s lab from fresh whole blood to PBMCs (NaHep Tubes) and Plasma (EDTA Tubes) and then shipped to the customer overnight.

The successful completion of the first project has allowed the researchers to set up another project with 50 patients from multiple indications.
