LBIH Biobank

The LBIH Biobank has been specifically created to provide SMEs and academic researchers with high quality biosamples, data, and analytical services. We house a vast array of biosamples, both cancerous and non-cancerous, and have the ability to collect bespoke samples and data to suit the needs of researchers. We have access to a wide variety of samples types including, but not limited to, frozen tissue, fresh tissue, blood products, urine and FFPE blocks. The LBIH Biobank can further process these into a number of products such as DNA, frozen sections, and cryo-aliquots. In order to offer a ‘one-stop shop’ for research, we offer additional services such as IHC, next generation sequencing,TMA creation, and project management for studies and projects, to include storage of trial samples.
