Biobank Cohort Forum
Is storage on a dry matrix a viable option in clinical research and an alternative to discarding sample collections?
11. April 2024, 12-13 Uhr

Webinar series organised by Biobank Sweden and

Speaker: Ulf Gyllensten, Professor at Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, Uppsala University.

A conventional ultra-low temperature freezer uses approximately 20 kWh of energy per day, as much as an average small household. Could sample storage on filter paper, a compact, low-cost alternative, provide more sustainable biobanking? What kind of analyses are possible with filter paper samples, and what kind of analyses are not? Is filter paper an alternative when sample collections otherwise need to be discarded?

Ulf Gyllensten has assessed the performance of different filter papers for storage of for example plasma. In this webinar, Ulf will give an overview of his own experiences followed by an open discussion and Q&A among webinar participants.
