The Biobank distributes both healthy and diseased samples to support academic and commercial research.

We offer high quality human biosamples for research undertaken for patient benefit to academic and commercial organisations. We have established collections from a number of different disease areas and welcome approaches to initiate new collections not already established within the facility. Our facility is sited at the University Hospital of Wales.

We support a wide range of research projects throughout Wales, the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
