The IBVR biobank includes bacterial strains collected during laboratory activities. These activities are carried out on biological samples originating from farm animals, pets and wildlife and on food of animal origin, and on feed.
Before biobanking each strain is checked for identity and submitted to quality controls for viability and purity
Taxonomicidentity of each strain is checked by the main available techniques. These optionsare followed for identity check:
Viability and purity are tested by cultural and microscopic test. Each batch is checked again for viability after preservation treatment and then, at regular intervals, for viability and for its main characters.
Compliance with awaited characters must always be confirmed.
Quality management system
IZSLER laboratories, that supply biological resources to IBVR, use testing methods performed according to UNI EN ISO/IEC 17025 quality system.

BIOBANK infrastructure of IZSLER has the mission of collecting all biological resources submitted to purity and identity controls, stored in different laboratories. It is difficult to get from others biological samples with known characteristics except for those that are obtained from certified Centres.
To cover this gap all biological resources collected at IZSLER biobank have been controlled and characterised by standard protocols to have detailed information on their main features. These data are included in a data base published in this web site.
Biobank infrastructure is made from best of breed technology to preserve all biological resources stored by IZSLER laboratories.
