Working Together, Finding Cures

About Bio-Sharing

 

For more than 75 years, community-based blood centers have provided safe blood products to hospitals for the treatment of patients in need.

During this time, our specialized infrastructure, knowledge, and skill set has allowed us to successfully recruit and screen consenting donors; then to collect, test, characterize, store, distribute, and infuse our blood-based pharmaceutical products.

Bio-Sharing is a partnership between this community of blood centers. We are teaming up together to grow and expand our mission to collect and provide safe blood products for patient care by offering customized, reliable, and scalable cellular products for use in the research, development, and manufacture of your blood-based therapy.

When you visit Bio-Sharing.org, you will be able to request a whole host of products and services from this wide network of blood centers.

These products and services include, but are not limited to, purified T lymphocytes, dendritic cells, hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stromal cells, serum, plasma, customized flow cytometry assays, HLA-typing, large-scale cGMP-compliant cell processing and expansion, and expertise in quality control and regulatory compliance.

You will also have access to a database of willing research participants, through Bio-Linked.org, with information about their personal and family medical and social history to help you find the right subjects for your research or clinical studies. There is also an option for customized questions that can be asked of the database members to further narrow down the right subjects.

Access to these products and services will help control the development and manufacturing costs of your new therapy and expand the base of research participants to the entire country.
