Biobank acts as a biorepository for the storage of biological samples (usually of human origin) which can be used in scientific research. Biobank facilitates research in the field of personalized medicine and genomics.
Preservation of biological samples such as cells and tissues can be done with the method of low temperature or use of chemicals. Biopreservation systems are becoming popular due to the growing demand for tissue banking, stem cell banking and umbilical cord blood banking. Pinpoint analysis of the global biobank equipment and media market covers information about different segments, competitive landscape, market dynamics, challenges and opportunities.
