Sputum is used to diagnose various illnesses, including pneumonia, bronchitis, and tuberculosis and determine the cause of things like a lung abscess. High quality specimens must come from deep within the lungs to be valid for research or testing purposes.

BioIVT has access to unique patient populations through remnant or prospective collections. While we offer samples from normal donors, we can also access donors with a variety of disease indications including COPD, Asthma and Cystic Fibrosis.

Features & Benefits

  • Ethical collection of human specimens
