abstract

  • Little experience is available to solve methodological and organizational problems when setting up a biological specimen bank as a support to prospective studies on chronic diseases. Sample aliquots preparation, processing procedures and storage system are discussed in the present paper. Problems related to the quality of biological material stored, as to the influence of the very low temperature freezing physico-chemical effects, are discussed also in the appendix.
