Biomarker data management is a key step in every clinical bioinformatics study. Approximately 40% of the overall analysis time is dedicated to these tasks, which are crucial for the quality of the overall analysis.
Biomarker data management involves the integration and consistency checking of data collected from different domains. These can range from patient data provided by the clinics, to data generated in the lab by biological analysis platforms. The data management solutions developed by Quartz Bio allow to flexibly integrate data from different origins and formats. Consitency checks are then performed by analysts with a biotechnological knowledge of the data. All the data management processes are documented, auditable and reproducible. Robust data management ensures that the data analyses are developed on a solid ground.
Biomarker data management involves different steps:
Biomarker data are heterogeneous. Technology-specific quality controls must be applied in order to identify possible sources of bias that could impact the analysis. The biology behind the assay and the sample logistics in clinical settings are two of the most important factors that can impact the biomarker data quality.
Each drug discovery program and each company has its own processes. Furthermore, it is not rare that multiple partners and collaborators are involved.
At Quartz Bio, we can also bring our biological and computational expertise to customize methods and applications to your own needs to facilitate data management and subsequent analysis.
Non exhaustive list of Methods development projects developed at Quartz Bio:
In every study, the design is key. It is particularly true in exploratory biomarker studies, where statistical power cannot be controlled and where sample logisitics can have an important impact on input data quality and availability.
Quartz Bio data scientists have analysed numerous biomarker studies and have experienced many cases where design flaws impacted negatively the analysis.
This expertise is routinely used a posteriori in the Quality Control process, but could also better be used before generating the data, i.e. at the design stage. Thus, reviewing the exploratory part of the Clinical Study Protocol and affiliated documents such as Analytical Plans or Manual of Operations could permit optimising the biomarker study design.
Our on-site repository is purpose-built with IRB-approved, clinically annotated specimens: human serum, plasma, whole blood, urine, and tissue.
We can also accommodate prospective collections based on your collection protocols.
Our services include:
√ Diagnosed Conditions (Cancer, Renal Disease, Autoimmune, Pregnancy, Non-Viral Liver Disease, etc).
√ 1.5+ million Biospecimens immediately available (Apparently healthy, Correlation, Infectious disease).
√ Manufacturing and distribution of study kits to your investigator sites.
√ Precision aliquot and barcode services that comply with your protocol
√ Project specific short/long term storage solutions
Access to biological materials is a prerequisite for your medical research, drug development, or novel diagnostics. But when your research plan requires biospecimens that are unavailable, or the nature of the collection makes it impractical to replicate, it can interrupt – even stall – the progress of your scientific research.
Our more than 20 years of experience designing and managing clinical trials, population-based biospecimen collections, and biobanking has connected ProMedDx with reputable clinical research organizations – and a bank of existing repositories of biospecimens – around the globe. Those connections open a world of unsurpassed biospecimen procurement that can remove the barriers to your continued research.
