Determining the quality of biological specimens continues to be a significant challenge for all research programs as investigators struggle to delineate biological change from specimen artifact. Both financial and specimen management are interrelated components of any archival strategy which require careful management to ensure the quality and accessibility of renewable and more importantly, non-renewable biological resources. The management of biorepository protocols is one of the largest and most important considerations when calculating costs in biobanking programs today, putting sustainable quality operations of biospecimen resources at risk. While often overlooked, proactive management and design of biobanking protocols can dramatically improve & address critical issues helping most programs achieve the quality required for serving their community.
