Assay Performance Validation Using De-identified, Discarded Patient Specimens
Project Description: This is project with no direct contact with patients. We intend to use expired patient specimens (whole blood, serum, plasma, CSF, urine, feces, etc) which would otherwise be discarded to perform validations for new clinical assays. Furthermore, patients’ charts will be retrospectively reviewed to gather pertinent clinical information (diagnosis) as applicable to the project. Any patient sample used, will be de-identified prior to use in validation studies. This project, in no way, involves direct participation of patients, thus posing no direct risk to the patients themselves.
