Trusting in Biobanking

Biobanking is used to create large scale repositories of human biological material, such as blood, urine, tissue, and DNA, to further medical research. Research institutes, hospitals, and biopharmaceutical and biotechnology companies rely on biobanks to advance research of new therapies and for the identification of disease biomarkers from large patient cohorts. Biobanking supports a number of modern research techniques, including genomics and personalised medicine, by allowing researchers to better understand who is most at risk of certain diseases and what treatments they may best respond to. A number of biobanks exist worldwide, each containing hundreds of thousands of samples to contribute to the growing pool of knowledge and safeguarding public health in future generations.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Biobanking

Sample collection, preparation, analysis, storage, transport, and data management must all be highly standardised in biobanking. Samples that are stored over decades can change, and researchers can never guarantee that a sample will remain unchanged over time. The high reproducibility of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy makes it an important analytical tool for biobank samples. It can characterise stored samples and determine whether any changes could lead to artefacts.
