Throughout the 1980s, access to well-pedigreed biospecimens was mostly limited to institutional collections and private archives.  For researchers working in industry, prospective specimen collections were expensive and time consuming, but the only way to move biomedical research forward was to procure the needed specimens.  To meet this need, Mr. McKie founded Bioclinical Partners in 1994 to provide a source of high quality biospecimens with accurate annotation, and a clear chain of custody.  Bioclinical Partners was acquired by IMPATH in 1999. 

Mr. Morin joined Bioclinical Partners in 2001, and  later formed Bay State Biologicals to continue making high quality biospecimens available to industry researchers. In 2013 Mr. McKie and Mr. Morin formed Medical Research Networx to provide a broad array of services and products to enable research and development of laboratory testing in the life science industry.  In September of 2013, MRN merged with the Clinical Research Center of Cape Cod, and Mr. Cannon brought over 35 years of experience in pharmaceutical clinical trials and biospecimen sourcing to the enterprise.  The company is located today in a state of the art facility in Wareham, MA.
