SBP is the national coordination platform for human and non-human biobanks. It aims to respond to the increasing requests from biomedical researchers regarding quality and the interconnectedness of biobanks for research purposes.
An important aim of Swiss Biobanking Platform is to promote exchange and use of biological samples. The SBP Working Group Microbiology proposes – as a first step – a dataset for bacteria, recommended to be used by all biobanks.
These two documents are essential for all biobanks. In its mission to help biobanks compiling with applicable standards, SBP will soon provide templates to support each biobank building up a strong gouvernance.
