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...

351 Lymphoblastoid Cell Lines Added To NIA Aging Cell Repository At Coriell Institute

Hundreds of biological samples donated from individuals aged 90 years or older have been added to the National Institute on Aging’s (NIA) Aging Cell Repository, housed at the Coriell Institute for Medical Research. The samples, a total of 351 lymphoblastoid cell lines,...

Do We Need Biobankers at All?

No one can tell the number of biobanks worldwide. Several years ago, I was involved in a survey at a university center in Switzerland. We wanted to find out how many biobanks there were in this center. A biobank...

White Paper: Labeling Best Practices for Biobanks

About This White Paper This white paper is intended for anyone working in or managing a biobank or biorepository seeking a reliable way of identifying and tracking biological specimens. Samples collected, processed, and stored by biobanks typically require long-term cryogenic...
