Bruker is proud to participate in this year’s Virtual ISBER on May 10-14. We would like to thank the organizers of ISBER for continuing to support the BioBank community and for providing a platform for all of us to come together, even though we cannot meet in person.
Meet us at our virtual booth and don’t miss Bruker’s presentation and round table discussion during the event:
Impact of New Diagnostic NMR-Tools on Biobank Sample Quality and Efficiency
Round Table Discussion Facilitated by Roland Leiminger, Bruker BioSpin GmbH, Germany
Wednesday, May 12, 8:45 – 9:30 AM EST
How sample quality can affect the use and value of samples. New diagnostic methods such as NMR diagnostics can be used to demonstrate new quality and sample safety by means of SOP-controlled processes. By retrospective data analysis of more than 900 metabolites the samples can be optimally evaluated before use. What impact will this have on future use in patient-centered research and development?
Expand the future use of biobank samples using NMR-based clinical research solutions *

NMR used under complete standardization allows fully automated QC for incoming biospecimens into biobanks, delivering relevant quality checks with one measurement. Adding spectral information and quantification to the metadata kept in a biobank, allows to retrieve spectra to be used in clinical trials e.g. as controls, such reducing the need to use new aliquots. Those data can be shared with all biobanks or researchers worldwide applying the same SOPs. Thus allowing common data analysis like in the International Phenome Center Network (IPCN), where research groups worldwide came together to build integrated spectral bases for epidemiological questions as well as disease monitoring resulting in faster progress than individual groups could have made. For example, if longitudinal collections of human cohorts are available in biobanks, personalized metabolic profiles can be built from the NMR data, generating a health trajectory, whose deviations can be identified at very early time points, allowing e.g. dietary intervention to re-establish healthy metabolic trajectories or common spectral bases can be used to build high performance tools to study the complex COVID-19 systemic disease with multi-organ effects and to follow up recovered patients to better understand the long-term health effects of COVID-19 exposure.
