Webinar // SAMPLE STORAGE TUBES AS QUALITY-CRITICAL COMPONENTS IN BIOBANKING

Webinar // SAMPLE STORAGE TUBES AS QUALITY-CRITICAL COMPONENTS IN BIOBANKING

Biobanks store biological samples and associated data to make them available for clinical studies, research on biomarkers, personalised medicine and public health. The paramount goal of Biobanking is the preservation of sample integrity during all steps of sample collection, processing, storage and delivery; hence, factors influencing the sample quality during these steps need to be understood and controlled. Whereas storage temperatures and environments, as well as, methods for secure sample tracking were always considered important factors in Biobanking, tubes containing the samples have long been disregarded. Here we emphasise the importance of sample tubes as critical components of Biobanking. In particular, the following quality criteria will be discussed: 

  1. raw material of the tube,
  2. tube closure systems and their suitability for long-term storage,
  3. biomolecule adsorption onto the tube surface,
  4. datamatrix codes for tube identification – their quality features and importance,
  5. quality of the datamatrix barcodes,
  6. guidelines for good practise in Biobanking.
