Scientist.com and Novaseek Partner to Offer a Patient-Driven Approach to Sourcing Human Biospecimens

Scientist.com, the life science industry’s leading online marketplace for outsourced research, announced today that it has collaborated with Novaseek Research, Inc., a health IT for life sciences organization, to create a first-of-its-kind process for sourcing human biosamples. Scientist.com users can now access Novaseek’s ever-expanding network of patients that have consented to ongoing access to their electronic medical records (EMR) and related biospecimens.

“Novaseek’s unique platform helps marketplace users find biospecimens and data that are not available anywhere else,” stated Kevin Lustig, PhD, CEO and Founder of Scientist.com. “Researchers can now use redacted clinical data from consented donors to conduct searches and make smart biospecimen sourcing decisions.”

Using its proprietary CDNR platform, which is embedded in a network of participating hospitals, Novaseek scans live EMR data from thousands of consented patients to find precise matches to research requirements; searchable data includes ICD10 diagnoses, medication lists, lab testing results, narrative reports and more. The platform then finds clinical laboratory specimens that are immediately available from these matching subjects – including blood, serum, urine and all types of fluids.

“The Scientist.com marketplace is a great way to expose more researchers to our award-winning human sample sourcing platform,” commented Andrei Soran, CEO of Novaseek Research. “The ability to find fresh specimens in real-time based on highly granular data, such as lab test values or medication histories, is unprecedented. And the data keeps coming – updates to the EMR are visible for each case provided.”
