The new biobank database becomes real:

During the year the new biobank software “CentraXX” by Kairos will be implemented in the UKB software landscape and will be available for the Core Facility Biobank team by the end of the year 2017. Interfaces with several clinic information systems, software of automated sample processing machines and management systems will be integrated. Therefore, to all samples of biomaterial arriving at the biobank there will be the associated data e.g. results of laboratory analysis or therapy information. Additionally, information from research projects could be added as well. The implementation of the biobank database represents a fundamental step in developing a service unit for researchers, whereby the dual character of a biobank is shown: sample storage on the one hand the appropriation of the associated data on the other.
