Modern biobanking requires the gathering and administration of large amounts of sample data, so that medical researchers can meet the fundamental endpoints of precision medicine. This trend is creating profitable opportunities for information technology (IT) companies in the value chain, to efficiently manage large terabytes of data with advanced software systems.

EMR Systems and Policy-making Serve as Backbone of Biobanking Infrastructure

There is a growing need for advanced technology along with the need to streamline the process infrastructure of biobanks in developing economies. It is even more challenging for stakeholders in the biobanking market to support the infrastructure in developing countries due to the inadequacy of essential requirements such as basic Internet connectivity and stable electricity supply. As such, individuals and healthcare professionals in developing economies are making collective efforts to formulate policies that safeguard the infrastructure of biobanks, so that researchers can continue to deliver valuable contributions in the healthcare landscape.

Other challenges that are affecting the smooth flow of events in the biobanking market arise from the timely collection of samples and the question about ownership and consent to access specimens and data. To overcome these challenges, stakeholders are introducing electronic medical record (EMR) systems, where researchers across the globe can request and access samples & clinical data associated with biospecimens.
