Cureline is a global biobank since 2003 organizing tissue research projects for development of personalized medicine and biomedical research including clinical network management, regulatory affairs, specimen collection, analysis and complete logistics. Our expertise is translational medicine and diagnostics development for solid tumors, hematology, inflammation/autoimmune disorders, infectious diseases, sepsis, maternal health, etc. Cureline has an extensive biorepository of human specimens located in the United States (South San Francisco, CA) and collaborates with 90+ major clinical and research centers, laboratories and hospitals worldwide on human tissue procurement and clinical studies.
Bioethical Policies and Clinical Information
Our team collaborates with the major clinical and research centers in the USA, Europe, and Asia on developing collection protocols that are approved by local IRBs and Ethical Committees and that comply with international and local regulations and guidelines.
A standard patient consent form is used for all Standard Collection Protocols. Project-based consent forms are developed for each custom study in collaboration with clinical sites and the study sponsor. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) are implemented to guard patients' rights and to use the samples with maximum efficiency.

All human materials provided by Cureline are properly consented, de-identified and selected with accurate clinical diagnosis and therapy regimens by certified medical professionals. Standard clinical information provided for each case includes age, gender, diagnosis, a pathology report summary and treatment history. If requested, a custom clinical report form (CRF) is developed and implemented in prospective procurement studies. A detailed pathology report from a US-board certified medical pathologist and H&E slides can also be provided upon request.


Our standard procurement protocols accommodate the quality requirements of most research methods used in the drug discovery and development process. Cureline works under guidelines of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) biorepository certification program and guarantees the quality of all provided human materials and services.
