Experts

Working Group (WG) Liquid

The SBP Liquid WG is composed of experts in Clinical Chemistry and operational biobank managers from Swiss University Hospitals. The group reviews existing European and International guidelines, to propose pre-analytical recommendations related to the biobanking of liquid biomaterials in order to support quality sample and interoperability among biobanks.

A first version of a preanalytical liquid dataset based on international recommendations has been agreed on, published and will be further developed to enlarge it to more specific sample types.

Additionally, this WG can be mandated on specific questions upon request. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), for its pilot study “Human Biomonitoring“, is thus officially advised on pre-analytical procedures and any other biobanking related issues by SBP Liquid WG.
