Benefits For Hospital Biobanks And Other Non-Commercial Biorepositories
Biosample Hub offers many benefits to non-commercial biobanks, and these include:
(1) Freedom from ethical concerns:
A not-for-profit company runs the Biosample Hub platform, and it provides complete financial transparency. In addition, the platform puts biobanks and companies in direct contact. So the provider knows the identity of the end-user. This enables full sample traceability. Together, these features offer freedom from ethical concerns.
(2) Increased visibility of hospital biobanks to industry
The Biosample Hub platform makes biobank collections and services visible to industry. Biobanks can offer a wide range of services. For example, tissue sectioning, quality control, immunohistochemistry, sample and data storage.
(3) Direct contact between the biorepository and the company
Biobanks and companies are in direct contact from the outset. This allows for increased sample traceability. So biobanks can vouch for the eventual destination and use of patient samples. As a result, biobanks can fulfil their duties as biospecimen custodians. Another advantage of this direct contact is that biobanks and companies can discuss collaboration.
(4) A free service
There are no charges for hospital biobanks, tumour banks and other non-commercial biorepositories.
(5) Freedom from contractual restrictions
The biobank does not need to sign any contract with Biosample Hub. So there is less hassle. Furthermore, there are no contractual restrictions.
(6) A user-friendly platform
Our platform has many innovative features and undergoes continuous improvement. For details, see the Platform Page.
(7) Benefits for patients
Biosample Hub meets patient expectations in two main ways. First, we reduce the chances that tissue samples are never used. Second, we increase the chances of sample use for research that will impact medical care. Research that may result in new therapies, diagnostics or vaccines.
