Infectious Disease Biological Matrices
Our clinical network of IRB- and Ministries of Health-approved facilities provides a diverse array of difficult to source infectious disease specimens.
The portfolio includes blood-derived biofluids and isolated cells from the following disease indications:
- HIV-2 and HIV-1 (adult, pediatric, and pregnant)
- HBV and HCV
- STD's: Syphilis and Chlamydia
- Tropical Diseases: Malaria, Dengue, and Zika
The collection of samples includes a stringent donor screening and testing process. All samples are collected at a clinic under medical supervision and are fully consented with appropriate IRB and Ministries of Health approval.
With each sample, we provide detailed donor and specimen characterization data to make informed conclusions about your results.
- Donor demographics
- HIV 1/2 testing
- HIV-2 only testing (negative for HIV-1 and positive for HIV-2)
- HBV and HCV (negative for HBsAg and anti-HCV)
Vaccine Efficacy Studies
Following IRB-approved protocols, the BioreclamationIVT team can design a study to collect blood, serum or plasma from consented donors following vaccination (post-FDA approval). These samples may be used in the development and improvement of diagnostic test kits and devices, biomarker discovery, as control specimens or as well as general disease state, clinical/medical research.
Vaccine study services provided include:
- Administration of FDA-approved vaccine (under medical supervision)
- Recruitment of patients
- Time point collections of large volume of biofluids (e.g. plasma) from subjects
Prospectively Collected CSF from Cognitively & Neurologically Impaired Donors, and Normal Controls
BioreclamationIVT has banked Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) from donors with Cognitive and Neurological Impairments, as well as Normal Controls, in its specimen sample bank. These specimens include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and ALS. Specimens are aliquoted in 1 ml aliquots and frozen immediately after collection. We can also prospectively collect CSF and other biological specimens from various other donor types.
Collection of Specimens from Control Asian Donors
BioreclamationIVT has approved sites that can clinically collect specimens from donors either living in, or originating from, the Asian Subcontinent; this includes Japan, China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Korea, and the Pacific Islands. The specimens are collected by physicians who have screened subjects to be normal. Please also inquire about our existing specimen sample bank for material that can be shipped immediately.
