What is the role of biobanks?

Biobanks (also known as biological resource centers) are entities responsible for the management of biological samples and their associated data. These structures can collect and preserve infectious materials in the form of samples inventory.

Infectious substances (or infectious materials) are biological specimens that are suspected or known to contain pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, prions or parasites that cause infectious or parasitic diseases in humans and animals.

These samples may be in the form of strains (viral, bacterial, fungal) or biological samples from infected patients or animals by viruses like the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 or HIV, such as tissue, tissue fluid or blood samples.

Setting up a collection of biological samples

After a biopsy, or other procedure to retrieve a human sample, a sample may be retained, with the patient's consent, for research purposes.

Storage of clinical samples

The samples, after collection, must be stored under certain conditions, depending on their type and shelf life, to allow for their viability.
