About The National Biosample Centre

The National Biosample Centre – excellence in storing and processing biological samples.  

Established by NIHR, we provide world leading sample management and high capacity bioprocessing services to biomedical, clinical and industry users.

We make extensive use of dedicated automation and software systems for consistent and high throughput sample processing and tracking.  The National Biosample Centre was established out of the experience gained by UK Biobank – an internationally recognised major genetic epidemiology study and centre of research excellence.
