The National Biosample Centre
Established by the NIHR in 2014, and operated by UK Biocentre as a not-for-profit organisation, we provide world leading sample management and high capacity bioprocessing.
We make extensive use of dedicated automation and software systems for consistent and high throughput sample processing and tracking delivering best value for UK medical research.
Our mission is to be the centre of excellence for UK sample management and a key part of the UK science infrastructure. UK Biocentre has no IP on the samples we manage for Investigators. We manage the samples according to the needs of the study.
We provide the logistical infrastructure allowing Investigators to deliver their study objectives.
The National Biosample Centre was established out of the experience gained by UK Biobank and operates the ethos that medical research always comes first.
