Posted on: 22 Sep 17

Scientist.com, the world's leading marketplace for outsourced scientific services, today announced the launch of a global process for the ethical sourcing of human biosamples using its COMPLI™ functionality. Created in partnership with leading pharmaceutical companies, suppliers and biobank organizations such as the ESBB and UKCRC TCC, COMPLI™ introduces a common, comprehensive process and supply agreement supporting access to human biosamples. The goal is to enable biobanks and other well-known human sample suppliers to more easily connect with researchers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries and academia.

“By simplifying and standardizing processes that previously took months, this initiative should shorten the research cycle and increase the pace of research,” stated Dr. Matharoo-Ball, President Elect, European, Middle Eastern and African Society for Biopreservation and BioBanking (ESBB). “We are pleased to support the development of a standard process that allows us all to rapidly utilise correctly consented human biosamples in an ethically compliant manner.”

Human biological samples, such as organs, tissues and genetic material, are increasingly being used in drug research, but until now there has been no common process governing their acquisition. The new COMPLI™ process helps researchers and suppliers adhere to internal and external (often legislative) procurement policies. It also ensures that appropriate donor consents have been obtained, tracked and communicated throughout the supply chain.

“It is still possible today to purchase human biological samples without any oversight whatsoever, putting all parties at considerable risk if samples are used inappropriately,” stated Matt McLoughlin, Senior Director of Compliance at Scientist.com. “The launch of COMPLI™ will significantly reduce the risks associated with using human samples. It will also enable researchers to gain faster access to critical research tools needed to respond to global health emergencies.”

COMPLI™ establishes a rigorous compliance and governance framework that increases visibility, traceability and control for the scientific research community. It is only available through the Scientist.com marketplace.
