ARCH Marketplace

The first truly searchable, all-in-one biospecimen marketplace.

Procure and acquire biospecimens with ease.

Acquiring biospecimens has always been difficult—consisting of months of discussion, management, and waiting. Most services are based on static Word documents, Excel sheets, or Smartsheets heavily dependent on emails that lack searchability, and researchers often end up excluded from the decision-making process.

ARCH Marketplace changes everything, connecting researchers, procurement, and suppliers through a highly searchable, yet functionally robust, interface that offers AI-based quality assessment via TCAP, our quality control system. See how ARCH Marketplace will change the way you procure biospecimens.

Search cleanly organized inventories

ARCH Marketplace was designed with the researcher in mind. The platform is easily searchable and has a user-friendly, biospecimen-centric design, including specimen images and a clean, intuitive interface. This makes it easier than ever to navigate supplier inventories and find what you’re looking for.

Get the exact specimens you need

ARCH Marketplace empowers you to stay involved at every stage of the acquisition process. Search inventories, select samples, and join private chats between procurement and suppliers to ensure your needs are met. Our platform also lets you acquire smaller quantities of specimens, so you’re never forced to overcommit on larger quantities or get ignored based on the size of your order.

Send inquiries for unlisted samples

Don’t see what you need in a supplier’s public inventories? Simply send a request for unlisted samples to see what else may be available in the ARCH Marketplace supplier network.

Trust the quality of your biospecimens

Suppliers are all vetted before being accepted into ARCH Marketplace. Through the platform, they’re also able to assure the quality of their biospecimens by using our automated AI assessment software, TCAP, which checks the quality of the samples with the skill of a pathologist and the accuracy of a computer.

Find samples faster and easier

Search and acquire or share lists of biospecimens with your research team from multiple vendors all in one place. The interface of ARCH Marketplace is user-friendly and highly searchable, with standardized search criteria and digital images. Now it’s easier than ever to find the biospecimens you need. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you can send inquiries to vendors in just one click.

Involve researchers at every stage

Researchers have very specific biospecimen needs, but other platforms make it difficult to keep them involved. Many are still email and spreadsheet centric. ARCH Marketplace consolidates your procurement activities in one place. Helpful features include vendor chat, search list, and quote sharing, and you can loop researchers in at every stage of the decision-making process to ensure you get what they need.

Manage all aspects of procurement

From initial discussions and simple searches to managing quotes, contracts, payments, and shipping, you can do it all with ARCH Marketplace. That saves time, reduces effort, and helps ensure no communications fall through the cracks.

Ensure biospecimen quality

Suppliers are all vetted before being accepted into ARCH Marketplace. The biospecimens must stand on their own, whether you’re seeking a minimum tumor purity or minimum tumor nuclei counts. Through the platform, suppliers are also able to assure the quality of their biospecimens with help from our automated quality assessment system, TCAP, which checks samples with the skill of a pathologist and accuracy of a computer.

List and organize samples with ease

ARCH Marketplace enables you to list your samples in an easily searchable format, with standardized categories, images, and data. This not only keeps your inventories organized, but also makes it easier than ever for researchers to browse your biospecimens.
