Support in design and implementation of the biobank / biorepository

To plan and establish biobank/biorepository is one of the most challenging tasks you can face. The person or team who is in charge of this process has to consider several aspects such as technical, ethical, logistic, etc. As if this would not be enough, each aspect separates into additional topics. One example is the infrastructure. Under this aspect the person(s) have to decide e.g. if an existing building can be used or if a new one is required, which floor plan can be realized, if all partners are already known to adapt or establish the facility or not. As this decision already interact with other aspect, e.g. finances, it becomes even harder to find the best solution.

To identify the best suitable and sustainable solution ASKION can support operators to establish a biobank. Hereby ASKION considers on the existing and future challenges. Together with the operator ASKION will analyze and guide through the major topics, including but not limited to:

  • Workflow-planning

  • Expected sample throughputs

  • Analysis and advises on local infrastructure
  • Provision of suitable floor plans (2D / 3D)

  • Support during commissioning and approval

  • Involving existing partners

  • Feasibility studies

  • Conceptual design and implementation of liquid nitrogen filling system

  • Risk analysis

  • Support on regulatory requirements

  • Implementation as a partial or an all-in-one service

  • What is the current state and what is expected in one, three or five years?


Out of all these parameters ASKION will prepare an individual proposal for biobank/biorepository operator. Afterwards the projects can be fully or selection wise realized by ASKION and your partners.
