Rather than being a simple provider of laboratory services, the red blood cell laboratory strives to partner with principal investigators to facilitate each aspect of a translational study in the hemoglobinopathies, and provide a full service resource.
Based on a long experience in clinical and translational studies, we provide support for the development of protocols for patient recruitment.
The preparation of protocols needed by local IRB committees, including proper patient consent forms are essential. We can support the preparation of such documents.
For laboratory tests, protocols are needed for proper sample collection and sample handling, including storage and shipment. We will provide such documents to facilitate the work of the staff responsible for sample collection.
We can provide packages that include sample collection tubes as well as shipping materials.
