Adherence to Ethical and Legal Standards
We adhere to the highest ethical standards pertaining to the collection of samples. Specimens Collected Specifically for Research (“Human Subject Research”) are collected under our IRB protocol with informed consent or under our partners’ IRB/IEC protocol with informed consent, both of which have been reviewed and approved by the TriMetis compliance team.
Remnant Clinical Specimens are collected under a Non-Human Subject Research determination without consent (45 CFR 46 exemption 4), with a waiver of consent, or with informed consent, depending on the sourcing institution. Researchers can specify the level of consent desired when procuring specimens, and only those meeting proper consent requirements will be delivered.
