Bioethical Policies

Cureline collaborates with major clinical and research centers in Europe, Asia, and the USA on human specimen acquisition projects. Our team develops standard and custom tissue procurement protocols that are approved by local IRB and Ethical Committees and that comply with international and local regulations and guidelines.

Cureline is committed to ensuring that the collection of human specimens for research purposes does not interfere with the patient's well-being and that a proper consent form is developed for each study in collaboration with clinical sites and the study sponsor. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are implemented to guard patient’s rights and to use the human specimens with maximum efficiency.
