The institutional liquid biobank collects and stores samples of bodily fluids, especially
blood, with their respective clinical patient data for the future use in research projects. Samples are processed and stored in a highly automated and standardized manner within the biobank infrastructure in the center for laboratory medicine of the university institute for clinical chemistry of the Inselspital.
The LBB was built to aid the progression of biomedical
research sustainably by supplying samples of exceptional quality in regards to international standards and thereby improve the prediction, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and understanding of
the underlying mechanisms of various diseases.
