Living BioBanks - Are they the future of biobanking?
Living biobanks, an upcoming concept in the biobanking sector, aim to overcome many of the limitations of traditional biobanks. In contrast to traditional biobanks that store non-viable specimens, living biobanks store viable and functional tissue samples such as patient-derived xenograft models, organoids, conditionally reprogrammed cells or induced pluripotent cells.
We explore in detail the concept of living biobanks, case studies describing established living biobanks as well as some of the key applications of this promising biobanking concept.
