The impact of preanalytical variability on research outcomes-the result of uncontrolled biospecimen sourcing-is magnified the further the patient is separated from the scientist. As the sensitivity and specificity of technologies becomes finer, it is in disproportion to the prevalence, pace, and pressure of the programs-leading to potentially disastrous outcomes.
On January 13, 2021, Precision for Medicine® hosted Sourcing Biospecimens for Your Research the first of a 3-part webinar series called The Right Biospecimen Plan for Your Research Program. Precision for Medicine is a global leader in supplying biospecimens, lab services, and CRO services to the life sciences.
Jim Boushell, Vice President, Biospecimen Solutions at Precision for Medicine, introduced the concept of strategic sourcing for biospecimens, illustrating a roadmap toward optimizing this process to mitigate risk, standardize practice, and reduce expense in the pursuit of better research outcomes.
