Biobanking

Biobanking

 

With the continued advancement of genomic research, precision medicine and direct to consumer genomic testing, the need for accurate results and absolute integrity of genomic samples continues to grow. Thermo Fisher Scientific is uniquely positioned to support these needs across your entire workflow – from initial sample collection and preparation, through analysis, to long term sample storage.

Collect

 

On average 13% of samples are contaminated during collection

The success of a biobank project starts at the point of collection to ensure the quality of samples and establishing a robust sample information foundation. Collect samples of any specimen type or matrices safely and securely.

Sample Validation

Following collection it is often good practice to confirm the samples authenticity and check quality prior to storage as a high contribution to error observed by banked samples is incorrect labelling during collection.

Sample authenticity and confirmation of origin can be validated using genetic analysis techniques, such as microarray analysis, qPCR and capillary electrophoresis. The quality of samples can also be analysed using techniques such as Mass Spectrometry and ELISA.
