All facilities of the Faculty of Medicine at the Philipps-University Marburg can use biosamples stored in CBBMR for study purposes. In cooperation with faculty members, external contributors and partners can also conduct studies using CBBMR biosamples.

Biobanks work at the interface between patient care and biomedical research. They collect patients’ sample material that is no longer needed after diagnosis and is otherwise discarded. The biobank processes these residual materials such as body fluids or tissue and stores the biosamples under high quality standards until they are used in research projects. To ensure that the biomaterials can be precisely selected for studies and other research projects, clinical data such as age, gender, diagnosis and therapeutic procedures are also collected and documented for each patient and passed on to research in encrypted form.
