The IBVR biobank currently hosts strains collected by laboratory activities performed on food and biological samples from farmed animals, pets and wildlife animals.
Handling and cultivation
Taxonomic identity of each strain is checked by the most significant techniques available for this purpose and the taxon in question. The following options are available for identity checks: morphology and growth behaviour; physiological properties including API® kits and/or other commercial kits.
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.
