Specimen Collection for Laboratory Procedures

Study Description

Specimen Collection Study for Development and Validation of Laboratory Procedures

Biologic samples are necessary for development and validation of laboratory procedures (e.g. novel biological and analytical assays, explant tissue models, validation of specimen collection and transport) to support future infectious disease clinical studies. In this research study, the investigators will collect blood samples, vaginal swabs, cervical swabs, mucus/vaginal discharge, cervicovaginal lavages, vaginal and cervical biopsies, as necessary, to use in the development of laboratory processes. The investigators will obtain the sample(s) from healthy HIV negative women. Samples will be collected and sent to Magee-Womens Research Institute as laboratory specimens are needed.
