Putting sample quality in the focus - raises awareness to raise awareness of importance of sample quality and standards among different target groups



One aim of is to support biobanks to improve the quality of biological samples. Another is to raise awareness of the importance of quality standards and (sample) quality management among users of biological samples and those involved in sample collection. In autumn 2018, took and is taking several steps towards this goal.


Working together with biobanks to improve sample quality management is one thing, but it is also important to raise awareness of (sample) quality management among clinicians, pathologists and researchers from academia and industry.


Therefore, is/was actively informing these target groups on various conferences and meetings by presentations, posters, booths, expert corners, courses and workshops:
