Lakeside Life Science makes biospecimens available to researchers via broad contacts within the medical community. We supply remnant biospecimens from multiple sources, and have access to large biorepositories with specimens from patients with cancer, infectious diseases, and many other conditions. We have vast experience with prospective clinical studies to fulfill specialized specimen needs.

  • Naturally-occurring RF and HAMA samples, in-house┬átested (several thousand in stock)
  • Cancer tissues with matched serum and plasma samples
  • Infectious disease samples
