What is it about?

Non-reproducibility of scientific results is very frequent and often caused by inappropriate biomaterials. Hence, standardization of biomaterial processing could improve research reliability. Therefore, the Austrian biobanking consortium BBMRI.at supported its partner biobanks with the establishment of harmonized quality management system and biomaterial production processes. Moreover, BBMRI.at fostered joint improvement by the establishment of mutual cross audits.
