At CIGMR Biobank we have a proven track record in helping projects get off the ground. We can contribute to the design of biobanking projects through collaboration and/or consultancy services.
CIGMR Biobank are an academic research group who are experienced in collaboration via consortium led research projects.
CIGMR Biobank recognise that with regard to biobanking, one size does not fit all and strive to develop solutions which are quality assured, cost effective and fit for purpose. We have experience of working with Clinical Research Organisations (CRO’s) as well as ethics boards and funding bodies.
We can draw on our network of biobanking contacts to find the right clinical data capture system, sample tracking system, sample processing SOPs, sample storage conditions and sample distributions strategies for your project.
