Watch our film about hospital integrated biobanking
The film demonstrates how healthcare-integrated biobanking works, i.e., the collection of samples for research through routine healthcare processes. Since June 2011, Uppsala Biobank has been providing healthcare-integrated biobanking services and sample management in collaboration with the Department of Clinical Chemistry and Pharmacology (KKF) at the Academic Hospital. This is a secure, efficient, and resource-saving method for collection and storage that also meets the traceability requirements of biobank legislation.
