Biobanking Science: Storing Cells at Room Temperature

Cryopreservation is the gold standard method to store biospecimens in biobanking organizations. Cryopreservation usually involves flash freezing samples and storing them at ultra-low temperatures (-160°C to -190°C) to prevent chemical degradation. If biobanking scientists follow strict freezing and thawing...
Biobanks store blood products.

Biobanking Science: Maximizing Red Blood Cell Life in Biobanks

Blood transfusions are a common part of modern medicine and have been used to save human patients for 200 years. Biobanks play an integral part in this process by collecting and storing units of blood from blood donors. According...
metabolomics needs biobanks

Biobanking Science: Metabolomics Biobanks

Metabolomics, an important part of precision medicine, is the study of different metabolites in normal and disease states. Collecting, processing and storing samples for metabolomics studies presents unique challenges for biobanks. Metabolites are small (low molecular weight) and unstable molecules....
Cancer biobanks aid research

Biobanking Science: Cancer Biobanks

Cancer is major cause of death worldwide and mortality levels remain high despite the development of new therapeutics and other cancer treatments. Cancer biobanks are an integral part of the fight against cancer because they facilitate research into new...
Embalming can preserve large biospecimens.

Biobanking Science: Preserving Large Biospecimens

Biobanks store many different types of biospecimens, ranging from cells and small tissue samples right through to whole organs, whole limbs or even whole bodies. Cells and small biospecimens can be flash frozen in cryoprotectant solutions and stored in...
Biorepositories store brains.

Biobanking Science: Managing Brain Biorepositories

Brain biorepositories such as the NeuroBioBank in the US, the BrainNet Europe consortium and the SIREN biobanks in Africa support research into brain diseases by providing valuable biospecimens. Biorepositories must follow best practices to maintain the quality of biobanked...
HIV-1 stable in biobanked plasma samples.

Biobanking Science: HIV RNA Stable at -80°C in Biobanks

Biobanks facilitate research by collecting, storing and sharing samples. One of the major concerns that biobanks face is how to best maintain sample quality over long time periods. The AIDS Clinical Trial Group (ACTG) is one of biggest groups...
