Our expertise



The search for biomarkers is a growth area in clinical trials and generates large volumes of samples. As we were looking to safeguard and centralize these resources within a high-quality biobank, we conducted a full audit of Cell&Co before selecting this partner. Cell&Co arranged for central collection of all our samples from over 70 French hospitals. Our collaboration has continued by extending to sample collection and logistics for major multicentre clinical studies. We particularly appreciate the team’s responsiveness and professionalism.
