UK Biobank quantifies DNA

Biobanking Science: UK Biobank Compares DNA Quantification Methods

UK Biobank is a major resource for health researchers around the world. UK Biobank collects and stores health, genetic and lifestyle data on 500,000 participants, with the goal of finding treatments and cures for age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s,...
Biobanks can comply with regulatory requirements by following ISBER Best Practices.

Biobanking Science: ISBER Best Practices for Biobanks

Biobanks face the challenge of storing and handling many different types of biological samples. Unlike chemicals, biological samples are living. Therefore, it is much more difficult for biobanks to retain the normal structure and function of biological samples throughout...
Biobanking professionals should be aware of leached compounds from plastic consumables.

Biobanking Science: Plastic Tubes Can Contaminate Biobanked Samples

Plastics Can Cause Experimental Errors in Biobanks Biobanks and laboratories use an array of plastic consumables such as pipette tips, sample storage tubes and cell culture flasks. Plastic consumables are convenient, cost-effective and can be sterile, DNase and RNase free....
Biobanking can cause significant freezing and thawing stress to cells.

Biobanking Science: New Non-Toxic Cryoprotectant Solutions

Cell therapy is a rapidly growing field that uses live cells to treat patients. This presents unique biobanking challenges because, unlike traditional pharmaceutical products, cells must be alive and functional to be effective therapeutics. Unless cell therapy cells are...
