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.
In line with its mission, Swiss Biobanking Plateform is pleased to announce the launch of a knowledge database on the regulation of biobanks in Europe, covering European law and the legislation of 7 countries, including Switzerland.
Swiss Biobanking Platform participates as the Swiss delegated body for the International Standard for biobanking (ISO 20387 – Biotechnology – Biobanking - General requirements for biobanking). Following the comment phase of July 2017, the standard proceeds now to the final step: the balloting process phase.
