What Constitutes a Biobank
The UK Biobank is a major UK medical research initiative which is following 500,000 volunteers for 25 years with the aim of collating data to help improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of serious and life-threatening illnesses. We work with a variety of scientists who support this initiative.
Modern biobanking is highly complex. Their prevalence and the sheer variety of ways in which they may be used and combined are continually expanding and evolving. BPE Innovation assist Biobank in their operation as a cryogenic storage facility. We ensure that archived biological samples are maintained in the proper manner to ensure that the data collected from research and experiments is used in accordance with the statutory regime.
