Implementing digital pathology for biobanking
contributed by Leica Biosystems |
The flexibility of digital pathology hardware and software solutions allows institutions, such as the Brussels Free University, to create bespoke solutions to meet individual biobanking needs.
Biobanks play a central role in translational biomedical research. Large collections of high-quality samples can help researchers identify clinically useful markers of disease and develop novel drugs. In order to fulfil this role, however, it is essential that the samples are well-documented with upto- date epidemiological, clinical and molecular data. The vast numbers of patients and controls contained in these biobanks needs to be easy to browse and search, too.
