The quality of the biospecimen have always been excellent. Project requests are always processed quickly.  Staff always responds quickly to OPCS queries.  Costs are reasonable and any changes to budget are clearly communicated to OPCS staff.  Projects are well organized.  In the 15 years I have worked with the BSR, I have never had an issue arise.”
