Why THB’s Model works
Our team of experts facilitates the whole process of accessing biospecimens
At THB we share the benefits of scientists interacting with scientists. Our team of PhD-qualified project managers are experts in biobanking, biospecimen assays, and biomarker development. This expertise helps foster time-saving insightful discussions that define project specifications to ensure your biospecimen needs are met, down to the finest details.
We carefully assess the parameters of your biospecimen and associated data requirements
We locate the right biospecimen sources and proceed with a timely and efficient feasibility study
We discuss Biobank Options with you
We may orchestrate a teleconference between you and the biobank to discuss any specific scientific or technical details
We ensure the samples and associated data arrive at your specified location within required delays
At THB we’ve established lasting and trusted partnerships with a worldwide network of academic biobanks, hospitals and clinical sites specialized in various medical fields. In addition, THB boasts a proprietary requirements database of over 2000 providers that can help meet some more challenging requests.
Timing in biospecimen procurement is a key factor in deciding on a biospecimen provider. Delays generated by the contractual process between parties can jeopardize an entire research project.
Over 150 leading academic, hospital, and clinical site based biospecimen providers have entered into a Master Service Agreement (MSA) with Trans-Hit Bio and agreed upon our umbrella Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) template. Our templates have already been reviewed and accepted by the legal departments of many biopharmaceutical companies and have saved months of delays and administrative work.
At THB, we take the need for transparency very seriously. Industry partners procuring biospecimen samples are informed of the samples’ source and our partnered biobanks are informed of who the end-users are and to what end the samples will be employed. Our unique transparency-based model enables us to:
