Biobank Antwerpen harbours a wide variety of collections of human biological samples, both from the University of Antwerp and the Antwerp University Hospital. The biobank works according to standard operating procedures (SOPs) for collection, processing and storage of high-quality frozen and fixated tissue and body fluid samples. The Biobank offers storage capacity to -180°C and an automated cryogenic biobank storage system. Clinical and non-clinical sample characteristics are managed by a customised sample management system, which assigns a unique identity number to each sample. Biological samples can be requested within the framework of scientific research.
