About us

The BioMaterialBank Heidelberg (BMBH) was established in 2011 as an organisational alliance of quality-assured biobanks at the Heidelberg site. The eight harmonised sub-biobanks of BMBH collect, process and store high-quality tissue samples and liquid biomaterials from clinical routine procedures and studies. In total, they manage more than 1.1 million tissue samples and 490,000 liquid samples in both organ-specific collections (lung, heart, vessels, pancreas, skin) as well as in specialised collections for tumours, infections and diabetes.

BMBH has a central biosample management system, a common technology platform and a structured quality management system. The NCT Tissue Bank, the largest sub-biobank of BMBH, has been accredited according to DIN EN ISO 17020 since 2009. With its expertise in quality management, BMBH is actively involved in the establishment of comprehensive quality standards within the framework of the German Biobank Alliance (GBA).
