Biosample Hub Benefits The Biospecimen Donor
Improved Biobank Discoverability
Improved Sample Traceability
A central feature of the Biosample Hub platform is direct communication between biobanks and companies. Biobanks using the platform speak directly to sample end-users. This improves sample tracking. As a result, the biobank can make sure about the appropriate use of their samples. So this allows the biobank to fulfil its responsibility as a trusted custodian.
