The Interdisciplinary Centre for Biobanking-Lübeck (ICB-L) is a hospital-integrated central biobank of the University of Lübeck in cooperation with the University Medical Centre Schleswig-Holstein at the Campus Lübeck and the Fraunhofer Institute for Marine Biotechnology and Cell Technology. It is shared by over 40 disciplines. ICB-L supports cutting-edge research for precision medicine for the benefit of patients and is involved in numerous national and international research networks. Certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001, it has been using “Broad Consent” since 2015, which in addition to the use of the latest technologies, also facilitates cooperation with academic and industrial partners in Germany and abroad. For sample storage of liquid and solid biospecimens, ICB-L specialises in automated nitrogen storage below -150°C. ICB-L performs pre-analytical research from sampling to storage within a cold chain to guarantee highest sample quality. Based on 2,800 parameters harmonised across campus, CentraXX, as the central database, manages sample, research and clinical data. The latter are provided via interfaces to the hospital information system.
