For the institutional LBB collection, blood samples of patients of the Inselspital including the clinical patient data are collected and stored for the future use of research projects. These
samples were collected specifically for the LBB collection in a highly automated and standardized process. The processing and storage is carried out in the Biobank Infrastructure in the Center for Laboratory Medicine of the University Institute for Clinical Chemistry of the Inselspital.
The institutional LBB collection was initiated by the Inselspital to facilitate biomedical research by supplying patients samples of high quality. The goal is to improve prediction,
prevention, diagnosis and therapy in human medicine. With the collected samples and data, underlying mechanisms of diseases can be researched.
