Definition The foundation biobank-suisse (BBS) is a c The foundation biobank-suisse (BBS) is a collaborative network of existing and future research biobanks in Switzerland. The primary goals are: 1. to provide researchers a quick overview of available human biospecimens (by using the web query interface) and up to date person related data; and 2. to provide biobankers with services to further improve the quality of biobanks in Switzerland (e.g. information about up-to-date IT and database software for biobanking; solutions for ethical, legal, and social issues; develop common platform for biobankers; etc.). We maintain a database with data about patients and biospecimens. The database can be queried from our web-site. Once the researcher has found suitable biospecimens we will bring him in contact with the biobanks, which have collected the biospecimen. The researcher and the biobank manager will then discuss the next step without further participation of the foundation biobank-suisse. We provide advice and support to biobank manager, who are in the process to start a biobanking activity for material from humans. Well established biobanks can benefit from our help in realizing specific projects to improve their operations. BBS was founded in December 2005 as an initiative of Oncosuisse and SWISS BRIDGE with the goal to build a collaborative network of existing and future biobanks for research in Switzerland. BBS has currently information from about 60 000 biospecimens and 10 000 patients. This information is provided by the biobanks shown under the "Partner biobank" menu item and include: * Institut de Pathologie, Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois (CHUV) * Institut für Pathologie Universitätsspital Basel * Institut für Pathologie der Universität Bern BBS has entered in a closed collaboration with SAKK's (Swiss Working Group on Clinical Cancer Research) IT department. BBS's server is run by SAKK and technical support is provided by the SAKK IT department. BBS is an active member of ISBER (International Society of Biological and Environmental Repositories) the international society of biobanks. BBS also joint BBMRI (an European initiative to build an pan-European network of biobanks. build an pan-European network of biobanks.
