What is the Biobank?
The Biobank is a centralised platform that coordinates the collection, processing, storage and assignment of human biological samples to promote quality biomedical research. These samples are available to the scientific community with the aim of consolidating personalised medicine.
In addition, taking advantage of its highly technical specialisation in the processing of samples, the Biobank provides researchers with a wide range of technical services to process the human and animal samples contributed by different research groups. All Biobank procedures are carried out under ISO9001 quality management certification.
The catalogue of samples available at the Biobank is structured into three large banks: Neurological Tissue Bank (NTB), Tumour Biobank and Anatomical Pathologies Collections (TTB), and Biological Fluid Bank (BFB).
People who wish to do so can donate nerve tissue to help research into neurological diseases. All information about donating can be found in this informative leaflet.
