Sample Collection

The BioBank Bonn stores and processes both, tissue samples and liquid samples. The biomaterial samples can either be collected for a specific study that has already been approved by the ethics committee or the researcher can collect samples prospectively for possible future projects.

Important note: Appropriate, valid patient consent must be available for all samples that are sent to the BioBank Bonn. Without this, we cannot accept the samples.

We ask that you please consult the BioBank Bonn before starting any project so that we can discuss exactly how the samples will be processed, what information should be stored, and how sample logistics should be organized.

General approach:

1. After consultation with the BioBank, the following information is recorded in a form:

  • How many patients and/or samples
  • Type of sample material
  • Time period of the project
  • Desired processing of the samples
  • Which data relating to the samples should be documented? Here, a standardized form can be generated in cooperation with the BioBank Bonn.
  • Sample logistics: How are the samples delivered to the BioBank?
     
  • If a specific study already exists: Please submit (scan or copy) either the ethics vote or the written confirmation that no vote is required for this study. Please make sure that the patient information for the study also includes the use of the BioBank or, alternatively, the patient information and consent form provided by the BioBank can be used.
     
  • If samples are collected prospectively: The patient information and consent form provided by the BioBank can be used. Alternatively, a specific patient information and consent form can be used; however, this form has to list the use and processes of the BioBank.

2. The collector (researcher/institute/clinic) always has the right to veto the sharing of the samples, so that they can only be passed on to third parties with written consent of the collector.

3. The BioBank Bonn must always be provided with the appropriate patient consent for the samples so that they can be stored. The samples may not be stored without consent. The consent only needs to be provided for the first sample per patient and study (see above), provided that the consent includes the collection of further samples.
