• The authors examine the differences between sample collections for single studies and large-scale collections for multiple studies (e.g., the National Tumor Bank at the Brazilian National Cancer Institute and the A. C. Camargo Hospital Biobank). (scielosp.org)
  • The banking procedures we have developed are adequate for assessing factors that estimate dietary intake (e.g. vitamins, lipids or micronutrients) as well as non-dietary variables (e.g. immunologic and ecogenetic factors of biologically effective doses of xenobiotic exposures) that may regulate the biological expression of dietary variables.

  • Selection of environmental materials and specimens related to terrestrial ecosystems and pollutants or pollutant categories. (worldcat.org)
  • The specimens are stored either in -80°C freezers and in cryogenic containers, or immersed in liquid nitrogen (-196 °C). A complex, secure computerized mapping system tracks the specimens and a sophisticated back-up system maintains integrity. (buffalo.edu)
  • Furthermore, the new enabling capabilities and procedures to manually conduct experiments with the specimens cultured in the Bioculture System will be demonstrated. (nasa.gov)
  • Efforts to compile health information and collect biological specimens from large populations are already under way in the United States and around the world ( 2 ), with the ultimate goal of unlocking the genomic basis of disease and ushering in an era of personalized medicine ( 3 ).

  • The goal of the ILIAD protocol is to create a database and bank of biological specimens (DNA, plasma, lymphocytes) from individuals with severe drug-induced liver injury (DILI) due to drugs, or herbal and dietary supplements (HDS) and complementary and alternative medications (CAM) after January 1, 1994.

  • Rare disease biobanks in this review had similar capacity for biological investigations, but in addition, had far greater sample numbers and higher quality laboratory techniques for quality assurance processes. (biomedcentral.com)
  • BIG to date has been mainly focused on large adjuvant trials looking at questions related to optimal chemo-, hormono- and biological therapies, or to special groups of patients, such as the young or the elderly. (wikipedia.org)
