Obtain human serum samples even from difficult-to-reach patient populations
and challenging time points such as event-based and longitudinal collection.
Human Serum Samples
With Sanguine, you get high-quality, human serum isolated from freshly collected whole blood.
By leveraging an engaging direct-to-patient approach coupled with on-demand specimen procurement and data collection capabilities, you’ll touch even the hardest to reach populations. Our fully integrated service solution is simple and has you covered from start to finish—including same-day delivery.
Why Is Serum Important In Drug Discovery?
Blood serum plays a critical role in the development of new drugs as serum contains albumin, which serves as the primary transport and reservoir protein within the human circulatory system. Determining how a drug binds to albumin is crucial to understanding its pharmacokinetic profile and in vivo efficacy.
The immediate isolation of serum from fresh whole blood followed by freezing the serum is important in ensuring that the sample is of the highest quality prior to starting research. Note that serum does poorly when subjected to multiple thaw cycles, so having aliquots prepared prior to freezing is always important.
A custom-tailored approach means an enhanced ability to recruit participants and procure biospecimens prospectively. You’ll get more accurate data points per sample, increased study design flexibility, and an expedited time to completion.
