Registration is primarily for researchers who are planning or conducting research projects that involve creating or working with collections of human research biospecimens.
Registration provides individual researchers with
- education on biospecimens and biobanking
- access to national standards
Information that the researcher enters in the registration form populates a biospecimen collection locator which
- serves as notification of potential future availability biospecimens
- advertises services provided by the laboratory and/or biobank involved in the biospecimen collection
Registration is a relatively simple process to complete. Registration is also a requirement of several Canadian health research funders and organizations for projects that involve a human biospecimen collection.
