While BioIVT’s name is new, our core business units have been in operation for over 35 years as providers of high quality biospecimens and related services, including human and animal biofluids and tissues from both normal and diseased donors. Our experience across all types of biospecimens means we can source the right specimen with the right data at the right time. Sourcing certain human biomaterials for research is not always easy, but with the breadth of clinical sites in our network, dedicated personnel for ethical sourcing, quality control, auditing and project management, underpinned by our strong quality management system – we can ensure our clients have confidence in our ability to appropriately source those hard to get, essential research resources.

BioIVT has over 200 IRB approved collection sites located around the world, including US, EU, Asia, Africa and South America. Our sites span a range of clinical operations, from local doctor’s offices to large health systems to donor centers. BioIVT works with local and centralized US-based IRBs, EU-based IECs, and Health Ministries in other countries as required and is in compliance with our UK HTA license for the storage, use and disposal of human biomaterials. Furthermore, our regulatory team stays abreast of current regulation changes and their impact through continuous education, such as attendance at seminars, webinars, white paper review, and on-going team meeting discussions, among other activities.
