Sample Storage Tubes as Quality-Critical Components in Biobanking

Biobanks store biological samples and associated data to make them available for clinical studies as well as research on biomarkers, personalized medicine and public health. The paramount goal of Biobanking is the preservation of sample integrity during all steps of sample collection, processing, storage and delivery; hence, factors influencing the sample quality during these steps need to be understood and controlled.  Register for a 60 minute webinar discussing the following topics in regards to the effects of storage tubes in biobanking. 


  1.          cleanliness of tube raw material,
  2.          tube closure systems and their suitability for long-term storage,
  3.          biomolecule adsorption onto the tube surface,
  4.          datamatrix codes for tube identification,
  5.          quality of the datamatrix barcodes,
  6.          guidelines for good practice in Biobanking.

This webinar will be presented by Sven Mühlfriedel, Ph.D. During his diploma studies at the Universities of Jena/Germany and Pittsburgh/USA and in his doctoral thesis at the Max-Planck-Institute in Göttingen/Germany. Sven Mühlfriedel is the team leader of the Product Management Group at Greiner Bio-One with a strong focus on Cryo Technologies and Biobanking applications.
