The Interdisciplinary Bank Of Biomaterials and Data Wurzburg uses Micronic 0.75ml and 1.40ml Screw Cap Tubes in ULT racks, in a Liconic automated -80C tube store. The German organization is Europe’s one of the leading biobanks. Since 2013, biomaterials culled at Würzburg University Hospital are stored centrally for research purposes in a state-of-the-art facility. Any discipline can make use of the quality-assured bank content. IBDW is one of the first biobanks to implement the concept of ‘broad consent’ and to almost fully automate its processes.
