Part 1: Information Management: Conquering the Complexity of Biobanking
Biobanks provide the resource for researchers to increase our understanding of complex disease. Biosample resources come together through a complex chain of cooperation across collection, preservation, storage, retrieval, and research. The value of these biosamples lies not only in the samples themselves but with the metadata associated with each specimen. Information Management (IM) helps simplify data from inventory management to database integration through to data analysis. Learn from biobank managers and IT professionals as they share their experience of conquering the complexity of biobanking.

Part 2: Lab Automation: Hands-On through Hands-Off Biobanking
How Do You Invest in the Future?
A well managed biobank is an investment that pays dividends. Biobanks create repositories of biological specimens for further biomolecular investigations. The sample types collected, preserved, stored, and distributed can be extremely diverse. Thus, laboratory automation is a critical component for handling ever increasing demands.

Part 2: 

Challenges of an Automated Biobank: From Sample Processing to Storage
Ellis GitlinEllis Gitlin, Director of Sales, Hamilton Storage Technologies

Biography: Ellis Gitlin is the Director of Sales at Hamilton Storage Technologies. He received his M.S. in Biology at Seton Hall University. Before his position at Hamilton, he worked as the Business Development Manager of Life Sciences at GE Healthcare, where he was responsible for Mass Spectrometry and Capillary Chromatography Sales.


About the Conference: 

Today, biospecimen collections are used by multiple research groups for varying research aims from basic research through clinical trials. A well managed biobank is a critical prerequisite for high-quality biological research. Proper collection, processing, storage, and tracking of biospecimens are critical components allowing researchers to better link molecular and clinical information. Thus, by necessity, biobanking is both a science and a business. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Third International Leaders in Biobanking Congress addresses both the business and science angles of biobanking, bringing together biomedical and biopharmaceutical researchers, regulators, biorepository managers, and practitioners to investigate the best tactics for effective use of biospecimens within today’s cutting edge research.
