A biotechnology business enabling personalized medicine research.

We believe their comprehensive biospecimen library will be an excellent addition to our current product offerings for researchers in lifestyle sciences.’ Sanguine collects and de-identifies biospecimen, medical history and other data from patients identified as having severe and chronic illnesses for use in biomarker research.
