Challenges in Gathering High Quality Clinical Data and Biospecimens for Prospective Biobanking Projects
The emerging need for personalized medicine now requires biobanks to adapt their processes and to add more data to the biospecimen’s collected. Easy access to sample-associated data and a standardized way to record this data is paramount to a quality biobanking service as well as annotated patient clinical information is of extreme value for research.
- Understand the need for a software combining clinical data associated and corresponding biospecimen information
- Understand the importance of maximization of sample value
- Understand the importance of harmonization of data and sample collection across multiple collecting sites
