Biospecimen collections play an increasingly vital role in biomedical research. However, the assessment of value of specimen and larger samples has hardly been put to the test, despite this being the groundwork for a sustainable business-, cost- and value-model independent from government or shared funding.
The project "EMES-BB" aims at developing models to quantify the value of biospecimen for a sustainable operation of biobanks. Therefore, it is fundamental to analyse the central key driver as well as its modelling to define the value of biospecimen. By consulting international experts within an expert survey, the development of a software-based automated generating of specific parameters is striven for. These parameters reveal options for user requirements and strategic planning.
The project intends to enhance and market its results with a view to establishing contact into the rapidly evolving biobanking scene.
