Biorepository at a Glance

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. With nearly 100 years of experience focused solely on biomaterial services & management, they have the expertise to store & distribute biological materials worldwide. Managing more than 23 million samples, they know what it takes when handling long-term storage of small or large scale biomaterials or specimens. Everything from managing proper room temperature, using state-of-the-art equipment and cutting-edge housing facilities, ATCC offers an inventory management system to assure biomaterials are properly accounted for at all times.
