BBMRI-ERIC Launches the Innovative Federated Platform that Benefits both Biobanks and Researchers

BBMRI-ERIC Launches the Innovative Federated Platform that Benefits both Biobanks and Researchers

The biobanking community has made a significant leap forward with the launch of the Federated Platform, an initiative driven by BBMRI-ERIC. This platform introduces two innovative tools, Finder and Locator, designed to facilitate researchers access to biobanks and biomolecular...
Leverage a Biorepository Management System for Decarbonization in Biobanking

Driving Decarbonization in Biobanking for Environmental Sustainability with a Biorepository Management System

Biobanks offer great potential to researchers by saving them the effort and resources required to gather, store, and manage samples and data. Through the pooling of extensive data sets, known as "big data," researchers can tackle crucial questions about...
Sample lifecycle in a human biobank

Utilizing Modular Biobanking Software in Different Types of Biobanking Activities

Abstract Biobanking defines all activities linked to bioresource management—whether of human, animal, microbial, or environmental origin—which means that any biobank information management system should take into account the multistep life cycle of the samples: from acquisition, through preparation, storage, to...

The Need for Patient-Pushed, Real-World Data on Neurodegenerative Diseases

Neurodegenerative diseases, is a collective term for a group of disorders characterized by the progressive neurodegeneration of brain cells, leading to dysfunction(s) and abnormal structure(s) in the central and/or peripheral nervous systems. One of the main causes of neurodegeneration...

Biobanks – A Platform for Modern Biomedical Research

Without biomedical research, medicine, as we know it, would be nothing more than a machine gun affair. In simpler words, biomedical research is the substratum that supports evidence-based medicine. Biomedical researchers study biological and pathological processes in order to...

How Biobanks Can Support Personalized Medicine

Biobanks should be an integral part of a comprehensive research platform, not exclusively viewed as a service provider or freezer farm managed with excel sheets. For biobanks to be be viewed as a contributing partner and one that can...
