"Although initially joining your database for healthy volunteers as merely for the interest of financial gain, I found the medical trials I took part on gave me piece of mind regarding my own health.
Not only was I helping the development of new procedures helping the prevention of conditions in today’s society, I got a free ‘MOT’ complete with feedback on my state of health "

"I joined biotrax 5 years ago in Manchester and had never volunteered before. I was a little hesitant, but through the help of biotrax soon started to volunteer in Manchester and in Leeds. I now live in London and still volunteer today. I would have no hesitation in continuing to volunteer, and find most clinics to be very attentive to personal safety and well being. What I like about biotrax is all the personalised help you get and the fact that they have so many other research activities you can participate in, such as the mystery shopping and film & TV extra opportunities. As a student always looking for ways to supplement my earnings, that was important to me at the time. I still participate in most things if I have the time. OH, I like the rewards of course. One of the medical trials I was involved with paid me 2,200 pounds and the money came in very handy. I am particular about the medications I test and that's something else I like about biotrax. They put you in contact with all research activities and because biotrax has so many things you can do it was easy to find something very quickly. It's a brilliant service. "
