EPL Archives, LLC provides professional biostorage services that allow our clients to consolidate, access via digital index, store in GCP compliant clinical biorepository and biobank facilities, distribute, and manage the lifecycle of their early, late, and post phase clinical research material. These services enable secure online visibility and rapid access to clinical research material to support new regulated product submissions and on-going research needs. Examples of clinical research material include blood and blood products (e.g., plasma and serum storage), human excreta and human tissue storage, DNA and cryogenic cell line storage, paper data and other data (e.g., consent forms, trial master files, lab specimen forms).
