Biobanks face increasing demands for research materials of consistent quality, which can be used in collaborative studies. Several countries and some international agencies have made formal efforts to standardize biobank operations and outputs. These include the establishment of best practice guidelines for collection management, and certification programs. Such guidelines and programs increase biobanks' opportunities for participation in high impact research and funding. However, they also impose economic and time costs, which may burden biobanks...

Skin vitrification is a promising and alternative tool for the conservation of biodiversity, especially for wild mammals, such as collared peccaries. Several factors can affect the success of this procedure, such as the cryoprotectant solution used. Therefore, this study was carried out to compare the efficiency of various vitrification solutions for recovery of viable cells after in vitro culture of cryopreserved skin tissues derived from the collared peccary, aiming to study the application in biobanking, where cellular use is not immediately required...

INTRODUCTION: This project used Boot Camp Translation (BCT) to translate the complex medical jargon of biobanking into locally relevant evidence-based messages and materials to support increased knowledge and understanding in the local community. METHODS: Biobank BCT was a partnership of 16 community members and 5 academic researchers. The partnership met for 8 months. RESULTS: The partnership developed five main and seven submessages to assist patients and community members in making an informed decision about enrollment in a biobank...

INTRODUCTION: Current prognostic models for acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are inconsistent at predicting clinical outcomes for individual patients. Variability in the quality of specimens utilized for biomarker discovery and validation may contribute to this prognostic inconsistency. METHODS: We evaluated the impact of sample heterogeneity on prognostic biomarkers and methods to mitigate any adverse effects of this heterogeneity in 240 cryopreserved bone marrow and peripheral blood specimens from AML patients enrolled on SWOG (Southwest Oncology Group) trials...

Ongoing quality management is an essential part of biobank operations and the creation of high quality biospecimen resources. Adhering to the standards of a national biobanking network is a way to reduce variability between individual biobank processes, resulting in cross biobank compatibility and more consistent support for health researchers. The Canadian Tissue Repository Network (CTRNet) implemented a set of required operational practices (ROPs) in 2011 and these serve as the standards and basis for the CTRNet biobank certification program...

BACKGROUND: The effects of preanalytical variables in tissue processing and storage periods on RNA quality of tissues have been well documented in each type of cancer. However, few studies have been performed on a comparative assessment of the impacts across different cancer tissues, even though it is well known that RNase activity is highly variable in various tissue types and RNase-rich tissues have been found to yield low-quality RNA. METHODS: We investigated the impacts of cold ischemia times and long-term storage on RNA integrity in various types of cancer tissue, which had been fresh-frozen and collected at the Samsung Medical Center Biobank...

BACKGROUND: Culture-independent molecular analyses allow researchers to identify diverse microorganisms. This approach requires microbiological DNA repositories. The standard for DNA storage is liquid nitrogen or ultralow freezers. These use large amounts of space, are costly to operate, and could fail. Room temperature DNA storage is a viable alternative. In this study, we investigated storage of bacterial DNA using two ambient storage matrices, Biomatrica DNAstable(®) Plus and GenTegra(®) DNA...

BACKGROUND: In the present study, we examined the effect of sample storage on the reproducibility of several inflammatory biomarkers, including high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP), high-sensitivity interleukin-6 (hsIL6), and high-sensitivity tumor necrosis factor alpha (hsTNFα). In addition, we assessed inter- and intra-assay variability between collaborating biobanks. METHODS: In total, 240 fasting plasma samples were obtained from the LifeLines biobank...

Successful cryopreservation of avian gonads is important not only for avian breeding but is also crucial for preservation of species, especially of endangered birds. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of vitrification by several cryoprotectants on the ovarian tissues of laying hens. Ovarian tissues were randomly divided into six groups: control (nonvitrified: C), dehydrated using ethylene glycol (EG), dehydrated with propylene glycol (PROH), dehydrated using dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and two combined groups, EG+DMSO and EG+PROH...

RNA is an essential biological material for research in genomics and translational medicine. As such, its storage for biobanking is an important field of study. Traditionally, long-term storage in the cold (generally freezers or liquid nitrogen) is used to maintain high-quality (in terms of quantity and integrity) RNA. Room temperature (RT) preservation provides an alternative to the cold, which is plagued by serious problems (mainly cost and safety), for RNA long-term storage. In this study, we evaluated the performance of several RT storage procedures, including the RNAshell(®) from Imagene, where the RNA is dried and kept protected from the atmosphere, and the vacuum drying of RNA with additives such as the Imagene stabilization solution and a home-made trehalose solution...

The establishment of a cryopreservation procedure for sheep oocytes will enhance the development of long-term conservation of sheep female genetic resources and the advancement of sheep embryonic biotechnology. However, higher cytoplasmic lipid content and complex subcellular structures affect the relatively higher sensitivity of oocytes to chilling and freezing stresses. Currently, the reports related to sheep oocyte cryopreservation lag behind bovine or pig studies. A standardized freezing procedure has not been established...

The growing complexity of biobanking requires dedicated professional staff who are trained in multiple aspects of the biobanking process, including technical, managerial, regulatory, and ethical aspects, and who have a good understanding of the challenges of biospecimen research, but also of the challenges related to the sustainability of future biobanks. Up to the present, biobanking staff have been trained in an ad-hoc manner, usually through specific short duration courses, for example, summer schools. In this article, we describe the development/establishment of a systematic 2-year training program at the Master level intended for students with a background in life sciences and providing them with a professional qualification as a "Biobank Manager...

The brown brocket deer Mazama gouazoubira is 1 of the 10 recognized brocket deer of the Neotropical region. Recently, this species has suffered a population decline due to current threats, mainly poaching and habitat loss. Several studies have shown that some endangered species can benefit from interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer technology through the use of their somatic cells, such as the fibroblasts. Thus, the aim of this study was to verify the viability and the effect of cryopreservation on fibroblasts after several passages...

High-quality biosamples are valuable resources for biomedical research. However, some tissues are stored without being sectioned into small aliquots and have to undergo repeated freeze-thaw cycles throughout prolonged experimentation. Little is known regarding the effects of repeated freeze-thaw cycles on the quality of biomolecules in tissues. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of repeated freeze-thaw (at room temperature or on ice) cycles on biomolecules and gene expression in four different types of tissues...
