Biobanks now play a crucial role in biomedical research, but the sheer numbers of samples stored means that the risk of loss or non-compliance is not an option.
Not only is absolute sample integrity coupled with a proven audit trail critical to the success of the research, the reputation and viability of a biobank is at stake. Often the research samples in a Biobank are simply irreplaceable.
