BBMRI Negotiator

The BBMRI-ERIC Negotiator is a service that provides an efficient communication platform for biobankers and also researchers requesting samples and/or data.
It substantially simplifies the communication steps that are necessary to obtain information on the availability of relevant samples/data, particularly if the researchers need to communicate with multiple candidate biobanks during one request/project.

The Negotiator is connected to the biobanks and sample/data collections catalogue BBMRI-ERIC Directory, the biggest biobanking catalog on the globe. This connection simplifies the process of sample/data gathering from potential custodians by sharing information about biobanks and collections of interest filtered out by the requestor between the Directory and the Negotiator.
