Safe and Trusted

Cutting Edge Biomed. Inc. is a pathologist run, pathology-centric and pathology-services-specific, Contract Research Organization (CRO), which includes a biorepository of vetted, quality assured, de-identified FFPE (formalin fixed paraffin embedded) tissues and tissue-associated data that has been validated for accuracy, authenticity and integrity. We ensure our biospecimens are standardized, well-fixed, and well preserved, enabling research outcomes to be robust, accurate, reliable, reproducible, and meaningful. Specimen selection and quality assurance is pathologist driven to ensure cases best meet project goals and study inclusion criteria. A pathologist reviews every case to ensure accuracy of diagnosis and to ensure the biospecimen is of sufficient volume to allow completion of testing, specific to study methodology.

About us

We are driven by a passion and commitment to help accelerate discovery and development that will bring new and improved diagnostic tests, prognostic indicators, risk assessment tools,

therapies, and devices to market sooner for improved patient outcomes.

In addition to our biorepository, we offer a wide range of histopathology, consultation and medical writing services, including support for IRB applications, guidance related to study design, and writing scientific papers.

We believe it is our obligation as healthcare providers to be involved as best we can in the support of medical research. In this way we care not only for our patients today, but for generations of patients to follow. We believe there is no greater or broader patient advocacy.
