ISBER is the only international forum that addresses the technical, legal, ethical, and managerial issues relevant to repositories of biological and environmental specimens.
ISBER educational resources and meetings focus on technical issues such as quality assurance and control, regulations, human subject privacy and confidentiality issues, and provide information about sources of equipment and expertise. ISBER assists vendors in recognizing the needs of repositories for the development of new products and services, and provides information about existing repositories and their specimen collections.
Now, on the threshold of exponential new developments in molecular biology, nanotechnology, environmental toxicology, and computerized data management, all organizations need an active interchange of ideas and expertise. Careful management ensures that specimen collections will be available for study as new biomarkers emerge and more sensitive measurement technologies become pertinent. We invite subcomponents of government, academia, the private sector, and manufacturers as well as interested individuals to become active participants in ISBER and to exchange knowledge bases on repository issues. ISBER is an international society, with membership from 30 countries worldwide.
