Consultancy reports

SBP recommendations

SBP receives questions from researchers/biobankers on different aspects of biobanking: ELSI, Quality or IT. SBP provides dedicated expertise to address these questions and much of the information generated from our consulting service will also be beneficial to the wider biobanking community.

We thus adapt our answers and publish them as SBP recommendations to help the research community that could be interested in these topics or could face the same issues.

If you want to benefit from our consulting service, please send us your questions at info@swissbiobanking.ch.

WHICH IT-SOLUTION TO MANAGE BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES ?

Our recommendation addresses the question why biobanks should invest in a specific dedicated IT system and propose a comparison between Biobank Information Management System (BIMS) and broad solutions, such as Excel, to manage their biological samples.
