Biorepository at a Glance

WRITTEN BY: Akshay Masand

Biobanking and biorepositories offer a unique level of storage opportunities for biological samples for use in research. Much of the genetic research being done, along with drug discovery and drug development, identify biobanking as the key to current and future research. Proper handling, storage and security is vital when it comes to the integrity of these samples.

The team at ATCC shared their infographic on the work they do in biorepositories.
