Centralized biobanks - Treasure troves of medical research

Most disciplines do not rely on paper libraries for their research. Working with tissue and fluid samples that have been donated by patients or healthy volunteers is necessary in medicine. Our camera takes a look at the inner workings of the centralized biomaterial bank at the RWTH Aachen University (RWTH cBMB). There, we learn more about data protection, technology and organization surrounding the storage of these biological samples.
