BIOREPOSITORY SERVICES FOR DISCOVERY & GROWTH
The University at Buffalo's biorepository program is an enterprise-wide resource, serving the research community and industry partners through centralized and standardized services for the collection, processing, management and distribution of biological assets.
The UB biorepository enables precision medicine and translational research through comprehensive sample accession, storage, QC and logistics. Our enterprise-level digital chain of custody and state-of-the-art automated systems help pharma and biotech attain their research goals.
The biorepository program supports four main operations to ensure complete digital and physical chain of custody:
Through advanced barcode processing and scanning, each sample is tracked at the time of collection, and data is transferred into the biorepository’s laboratory information management system.
Automated pre-processing (i.e. blood fractionation, pathology services) and processing (i.e. nucleic acid extraction, PBMC processing) help minimize variation of primary biosamples and their analytes for banking.
All storage environments are highly regulated, monitored 24/7/365, supported by complete and continuous backup power and are supported by redundant freezers for uninterrupted storage.
Due to automated sample storage systems and streamlined processes, the UB biorepository can support high-volume sample requests on a moment’s notice.
