BIO|OPTIONS provides readily available, high-quality, well-characterized human tissues and biological materials for molecular and genomic research, drug development and diagnostic testing. Through our extensive and expanding network of nearly twenty hospitals, physician’s offices, etc., we have created a considerable biorepository. We offer frozen and formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue specimens.
BIO|OPTIONS engages a wide and diverse network of procurement sites consisting of physicians offices, hospitals and clinical laboratories. As a result, we are able to provide a broad range of specimen types in our biorepository.
- Diseased and Normal Adjacent Tissue
- Surgical Tissue
- Blood: Serum, Plasma and PBMC
- Bone Marrow, Cord Blood, Placenta
- Biofluids: Ascites, Pleural Effusion, Synovial Fluid, Urine
- Tissue Microarrays (TMA)
We provide biospecimens of the highest quality from virtually all disease states to empower and enable your research.
- All the Common Solid Tumors
- Hematological Diseases
- Multiple Myeloma
- Autoimmune Diseases
- Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
- Cardiovascular Diseases
- Neurological Diseases
Specimens are annotated with surgical pathology reports, clinical data and laboratory reports. Outcome data and detailed clinical information can also be obtained for a number of specimens.
Physician Owned and Operated
The officers of BIO|OPTIONS consist of licensed physicians with extensive medical training and experience, including surgeons, pathologists and general practice. We have designed procurement protocols to generate the best possible samples for our clients and work directly with physicians and their support staff assuring that these protocols are followed. This results in the highest possible quality and integrity of cellular components such as RNA, DNA, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids and the capture of all of the relevant clinical data. We work with researchers to develop protocols that physicians and hospitals can implement to achieve your research needs.
Sourced Only in the United States
All of our specimens are procured at facilities located in the United States in compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations and ethical guidelines for use for research and commercial purposes. Collection facilities are located on the East and West coasts and Midwest.
