The Center for Molecular Fingerprinting (CMF) started the application process for a biobank license earlier this year. The CMF-team is now proud to announce that the NNK (National Public Health Center) has granted the license for our interim biobank at Szeged. The new biobank is equipped with 2 -80 °C ultradeep freezers with a storing capacity of 40 000 aliquots per equipment. To ensure sample security, one of the freezers serves as a backup. In case of an emergency, text message and email is sent to Biobank operators to give enough time to save samples. Gaining a biobank license is an important step forward in CMF’s life.
