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...
The Brainstorm Consortium has analyzed data from over 1 million people.

Biobanking Science: Brainstorm Consortium Finds Genetic Link for Brain Diseases

One of the major benefits of biobanking is the ability to safely collect and store large numbers of biological samples. This allows researchers to generate large datasets to study the genetic cause of various diseases. The Brainstorm Consortium uses...
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...
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....
UK Biobank data used to study chronic diseases.

Biobanking Science: Disease Patterns in UK Biobank Data

The UK Biobank is one of the biggest biobanking projects in the world with samples and data from over 500,000 participants aged 40 to 69 years. UK Biobank participants allow doctors to take repeat physiological measurements such as blood...

Biobanking is an Integral Part of Cell Therapy Cell therapy is a rapidly growing medical field with the potential to treat a wide range of human diseases. Cell therapies comprise living cells which presents a unique biobanking challenge. The biological...
Biobanking and colorectal cancer tissues

Biobanking Science: Biobanking Samples for Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer, affecting 1.8 million new patients and causing 862,000 deaths every year (1). Studies show that eating processed or red meat and drinking alcohol may increase the risk for colorectal cancer (2)....
chronic kidney disease patients may need transplant

Biobanking Science: Biobanks Tackle Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease is common. The prevalence of chronic kidney disease has rapidly increased over the past 20 years, and it now affects 13% of people around the world (1). Chronic kidney disease can be difficult to treat because...
Chemosensitizers may help fight antibiotic resistance.

Biobanking Science: Tackling Antibiotic Resistance

Antibiotic resistance is a major health issue. More than 700,000 people around the world die from antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections every year—23,000 of those are in the United States (1). If we don’t find a solution, the number of deaths...
