Database & Web Portal

Biobank Ireland has completed development of a new BIMS (Biobank Information Management System) or database with Modul-Bio, a French company with extensive experience of working with biobanks. The BIMS includes nearly 7000 prospectively collected tissue samples and also includes data on samples released for projects. The BIMS is being used by the Thoracic Oncology research group and will be available for use by other Irish biobanks.

In the next phase there will be a web portal (online catalogue) that researchers can search for coded samples and restricted data of interest.
