  • About Us

    About Us

    East West Biopharma is a Swiss incorporated (Aldima Group of Companies) human biospecimen CRO operating in Eastern Europe. For over 10 years we have provided biospecimens and human tissue related solutions for leading biomedical research organizations, including European and US academic institutes, pharmaceutical top five R&D companies, large biobanks and biorepositories, etc.

    Among examples of our successful projects are prospective collections for the US National Cancer Institute and the US National Genome Research Institute for The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) program through our partner organization. Currently we are participating in the Clinical Proteomic Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) project.

    Our experienced team of medical staff and qualified investigators strictly adhere to GCP, GDA and EMA standards for data integrity, patient protection and regulation.

    We are member of the International Society For Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER), the European, Middle Eastern and African Society for Biopreservation and Biobanking (ESBB), the Asian Network of Research Resource Centers (ANRRC), and the European Society for Translational Medicine (EUSTM) professional organizations.

    We cooperate with an extensive network of clinics in Eastern and Southern Europe under IRB approved contracts.

    East West Biopharma uses a dedicated bio specimen inventory data base that provides an integrated and fully-tracked samples, freezer and shipment management system. We cooperate with international logistics services experienced in biomedical material transportation. We ship to Western Europe and the United States on a regular basis.
