Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Charles University
Bank of Biological Material
The Biobank of the Faculty of Medicine in Pilsen, Charles University, was established in 2014 on the premises of the Department of Immunochemical Diagnostics (OID) of the University Hospital Pilsen. The Biobank is collecting specimens of liquid clinical material on the basis of a contract between the two institutions. At the same time, it closely collaborates with the laboratory regarding the receipt and processing of samples and the acquisition of laboratory data from immunoanalytical assays, including multiplex ones. Biobank activities are supported by European projects within the BBMRI.cz consortium, part of the European research infrastructure for biobanking BBMRI-ERIC. The Biobank is being gradually expanded and modernized, and in 2020 it acquired the status of an independent OID division.
