Our products

Product category: Immuno assay testing, Diagnostic rapid tests, Molecular biomarkers

COVID-19 Specimens (Swabs / Serum / Plasma) tested for SARS-CoV-2

Worldwide, thousands of laboratories working on reliable diagnostic systems with high specificity and sensitivity. Patient samples are the key to accurate development of test systems.

Central BioHub offers high-quality human biospecimens of COVID-19 patients with both acute and convalescent infections. Find various matrices such as serum, plasma and NP/OP swabs.

Swabs (nasopharyngeal/oropharyngeal) are stored in VTM, ESwab, Aptima or in saline media. Serum and plasma are available from clinically confirmed or asymptomatic patients or from donors tested negative for SARS-CoV-2. Tested antibodies are IgG, IgM and IgA.

For your convenience we offer pre-selected biosamples with positive and/or negative samples in panels of different sizes. Samples can be ordered online with an ease of a click, we offer dynamic cart system to help in making your procurement easy.

Serum Samples (Healthy / Disease State)

Explore our inventory of 200,000+ normal and disease state human serum samples available online on www.centralbiohub.com. We are regularly enhancing our inventory and adding more suppliers to our network.

Start your product search by filtering for laboratory parameters, disease in clear name or ICD-10 code. Refine your search by selecting the patient age, sex, ethnicity, BMI and medication.

You can place the order online after adding the desired sample in the shopping cart and finish your purchase conveniently. We offer various payment methods to book the order, it includes but not limited to Debit card, purchase order, credit card etc.

Blood serum is the liquid part of blood that is obtained as supernatant when centrifuging a clotted blood sample. In contrast to blood plasma, the serum is free of fibrinogen. Furthermore, its composition is identical to that of blood plasma. It still contains some components of blood clotting in an active form, such as thrombin, and all other plasma proteins.

Plasma Samples (Healthy / Disease State) in Small Volumes & Bulks

Central BioHub provides all common types of plasma like ACD, Citrate, CPD, CPDA, K2/3 EDTA, Na EDTA, Heparin, NaHep, LiHep, K Oxalate and NaF Plasma.

To meet your research and development needs use further filtering and customize your search for example by laboratory parameters, disease in clear name or ICD-10 code, donor specification, volume and price.

Blood plasma is the cell-free portion of blood obtained by centrifuging an unclotted blood sample. It is a clear, yellowish liquid and consists of 91 percent water. The rest is made up of nutrients, hormones, minerals and various proteins which are responsible for blood clotting or for the defence against infections.

Swabs (NP / OP / vaginal / rectal)

Find nasopharyngeal (NP), oropharyngeal (OP), vaginal and rectal swabs on www.centralbiohub.com. Swabs are taken from patients with various diseases and infections and are tested for viral and bacterial pathogens.

Additionally, we offer a large number of COVID-19 swabs. They come in various different transport media such as VTM, Saline, eSwab and Aptima. For convenient validation of COVID-19 assays, Central BioHub has also designed panels containing positive and negative specimens.

For pathogen detection, samples are taken from the site of infection with a sterile swab. The Swab is then stored in a transport medium which prevents the sample from drying out and protects against microbial growth. If the pathogen is to be detected by a molecular detection method (PCR), only dry swabs or swabs with specific transport fluid may be used.

Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) specimens

Central BioHub’s inventory includes 400+ FFPE tissue blocks for many different cancer types. This contains kidney, liver, breast, stomach, colon, uterine, lung, thyroid and many more. In addition to FFPE samples from carcinogenic tissue Central BioHub offers matching samples from normal adjacent tissue (NAT).

Each tumour is classified by the TNM staging system and measured in detail. Data on other factors such as sex, age, ethnic group, weight and height are also available.

Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded (FFPE) tissue is primarily used for histological examination of biological tissues by microscopy. For this purpose, the corresponding tissue is first fixed with formalin and then embedded in paraffin. This process creates permanently preserved tissue blocks that can be cut into thin specimens and stained by several methods.

Pre-Selected Biospecimen Panels

The selection of a large number of biosamples can be tedious and time-consuming. Central BioHub offers pre-selected and accurately composed sets of biospecimens as panels that save a lot of time and money.

The panels are theme specific and available in different sizes with the stock growing steadily. They are ideal for testing diagnostic systems for interfering substances. Every diagnostic device has to be tested for potential interfering factors during development. For this essential step in assay validation, we have put together ideally composed collections of biospecimens:

  • Interfering Substances Panel
  • Sepsis Panel
  • Rheumatology Panel
  • Thyroid Diseases Panel
  • Obesity Panel
  • Pregnancy Panel
  • Diabetes Panel
  • Gerontology Panel
  • Oestrogen Panel
Besides the interference panels, biospecimen collections of COVID-19 patients in different sizes tested positive or negative available.
