Biobanking with BioGrad

 

The HTA approved BioGrad biobank opens in Wavertree Technology Park (Liverpool) in autumn 2022!

 

This biobank has been established to provide long term cell banking for NHS trusts, academic researchers and UK families who wish to guarantee safe storage of their samples within the UK, focussing predominantly on storage of human and equine biopsies, blood, stem cells, umbilical cords, semen and serum samples.

 

The customised facility includes 5000 sqft of sample preparation laboratories plus 5000 sqft of long-term storage (-20oC to -196oC) in the same building, thus preventing any risks of damage during transit.  The BioGrad biobank has 2 sustainable sources of electricity, a backup repository of 500kWh electricity storage and an on-site liquid nitrogen generator that generates liquid nitrogen from N2 in the air. This sustainable energy not only reduces our carbon footprint but also provides peace of mind for our clients should external influences impact the national grid or the delivery of liquid nitrogen. The secure site is close to the motorway with 25 car parking spaces for couriers, 24 hour monitoring of samples and 24 hour access.

 

The wrap-around service includes 24/7 CQC accredited sample collection at hospitals throughout the UK, 24/7 courier services direct to the laboratory and sample processing if required. In addition to offering safe and secure sample storage, the BioGrad biobank provides FREE sample withdrawal and secure delivery to anywhere in the UK mainland within 12 hours (if required).
