How we assist the Research Community
CBRS Biobanks play a vital role in supporting the research community by providing essential biosample storage services. These services are crucial in preserving human biospecimens that serve as the cornerstone for future research endeavors. By securely storing these biospecimens, CBRS enable researchers to delve into critical areas such as drug delivery, cell activity, and disease pattern identification. This valuable resource aids in advancing scientific understanding, promoting medical breakthroughs, and improving overall healthcare outcomes.
CBRS serves distinct purposes in the research community, with variations in their service offerings and sample types. While our biorepository primarily functions as a storage facility for a wide range of biosample types, it also specializes in bio-informatics and focuses on multiple research areas, making our collections valuable resources for the broader research community, such as cancer.
Researchers in the industries such as biotech and pharmaceuticals, appreciate the availability of categorized biobanks and biorepositories, and we provide access to well-organized and curated collections that align with their specific research needs. Therefore, in CBRS, we take special efforts to keep our samples well-organized and readily available for any research need, anytime.
Our Global distribution of Biosamples
Our biobank takes immense pride in its global distribution network, which enables the widespread availability of biosamples to researchers and scientists Countrywide. We have strategically established partnerships and collaborations with institutions, organizations, and research facilities across various countries, ensuring that our biosamples can reach researchers wherever they are located.
Our global distribution capabilities are supported by robust logistics systems, which include specialized packaging and temperature-controlled environments to preserve the stability and viability of the biosamples during transit. We work closely with reputable shipping partners who have extensive experience in handling biological materials, ensuring that the samples are delivered in a timely and reliable manner.
Overall, our extensive global distribution network enables us to efficiently and effectively deliver biosamples to researchers Countrywide, fostering collaborations and accelerating scientific advancements on a global scale.
At CBRS, we prioritize the safety and security of our laboratory and the precious biosamples stored within. To mitigate the risks of unforeseen events such as blackouts, equipment failures, and temperature fluctuations, we have implemented modern laboratory technology and robust alarm systems.
- Our laboratory storage and alarm systems are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, ensuring the protection and integrity of the biosamples. In the event of equipment malfunctions or deviations, our central alarm systems continuously monitor all incubators, freezers, and refrigerators 24/7.
- To ensure uninterrupted operations, our critical equipment and mechanical systems are backed up by emergency power systems.
- A separate unit dedicated to backup facilities, to store cryopreserved specimens equipped with multi-tiered alarm systems that monitor various factors, including ambient oxygen levels and door entry activity. This comprehensive approach ensures the safety and integrity of the stored specimens.
CBRS, as a responsible and reputable organization, places great emphasis on adhering to ethical and legal guidelines. To ensure compliance, we have established our own Independent Ethics Committee and have obtained certifications from various recognized authorities.
CBRS is proud to be MSME certified and registered under the Department of Health and Research (DHR) of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. Additionally, we are also registered with The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), another prestigious regulatory body in India. These certifications and registrations serve as a testament to our commitment to following all necessary legal and ethical procedures.
In handling human biological samples, CBRS strictly adheres to two major guidelines. Firstly, we adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This ensures the protection of individual health information and promotes the privacy and security of patient data.
Secondly, we rigorously follow the guidelines established by The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). These guidelines outline the best practices for the handling, storage, and utilization of human biological samples, ensuring the utmost ethical considerations are taken into account.
By strictly adhering to these guidelines and regulations, CBRS guarantees that all legal and ethical procedures are diligently followed. Our commitment to compliance underscores our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and ensuring the protection and confidentiality of all patient-related information and biological samples entrusted to us.
