5,000 Days of Biobank Experience - What Have We Learned and How Do We Prepare for the Next Decade?

Presented by: Erik Steinfelder (Thermo Fisher Scientific, The Netherlands)

Last year, a study performed by the German Biobank Node (GBN) proved again that researchers are in need of high-quality samples that have been processed and stored under reliable conditions. While this might seem obvious, it is easier said than done for many biobankers. What is the best way to prepare and store samples if you are focusing on specific molecular mechanisms of diseases versus investigation of target expression in large patient cohorts when designing a clinical trial? Before samples are actually stored, it is good to have a clear understanding of their potential use i.e. which analytical technologies will be used. In those cases where the analytical end goal is not clear, consensus should be there on which general storage conditions must apply. In the last decade, hundreds of biobanks around the globe were supported by our cold storage solutions, pre-analytical workflows and -omics technologies. What did we see, learn, develop and improve that could help you achieve the requirements of researchers that are desperately looking for samples and associated clinical data? Join us for an industry perspective presented in an interactive manner that could help you to optimize your approach and processes.
