Biobanking Modernisation and Sustainability

Sustaining high quality samples for decades of discovery.

Watch the Webinar


A recent survey from the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER) identified operational disruptions, COVID-19 sample handling and infrastructure support as the top three challenges to biobanks during the pandemic.

The past year has truly challenged everything we understood about effective risk management of high-quality biological specimens. During this unprecedented challenge, facilities relied heavily on standardised protocols to provide proven and successful directives. But what happens when there is no SOP for a sudden closure, inability to physically access a facility or fewer and inexperienced personnel?

By modernising sample collection workflows to meet best practices and assessing equipment to improve processing efficiency, we can mitigate the risk that otherwise impedes collaborative research progress.

Webinar Key Topics:

  • Operational resilience
  • What are the best practices and standards you should strive to meet?
  • Continuity of Quality Management Plan through ISO 20387 and CAP certification
  • Training and equipment modernisation
