Biological Sample - What is that?

What is a biological sample and why would a medical researcher need that?

Great question! Simply put, this type of request is for any type of biological specimen such as cells, internal organs, veins, or even fluids. Researchers need specific types of human tissue to perform their work to advance medicine. For example, Science Care donors recently helped in validating new blood testing methods.  The goal of this work is to provide more accurate results for patients.
