Hospital-integrated clinical biobank (liquid samples, tissue, cells)

About us

The Central Biobank UMG (University Medical Center Göttingen) supports medical research by providing high quality samples and data to contribute to the development of better options for diagnostics and therapy.

Central Biobank UMG is very closely linked to the processes of care. For example, all liquid samples are bundled, aliquoted and frozen on the fully automated laboratory line of the central laboratory (UMG Laboratory) before reaching the biobank. The same applies to the data flow concerning the samples. There are interfaces in place between the laboratory information system, the pathology system and the fully automated storage robot in the biobank.

Central Biobank UMG primarily focuses on projects from UMG's three core research areas: Cardiology, Neuroscience and Oncology. In addition, relevant samples for projects will be collected in the years ahead according to a defined collection strategy.

Within the framework of the German Biobank Alliance (GBA) Central Biobank UMG focusses particularly on data management (UMG Biobank is part of the IT-Core-Teams), the work package „Education and Training“ (WP 6) and quality management.
