Samples are stored at different temperatures in accordance to their own features.
Room temperature, -20° C, -80° C, -130° C (vapour phase nitrogen), and -196° C (liquid nitrogen). Each vial is labelled using a QR barcode system.
Sample management is performed by a dedicated software.
It allows to know the number of available samples, their origin, laboratory of preparation / isolation and temperature of storage.
Samples can be used for diagnosis, research, production, epidemiological surveys and other applications.
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.
