What types of biorepositories and biospecimens fit your environment? What are the IT aspects in linking the clinical information to the specimen? This is a glimpse into the not so distant future where biorepositories adhering to national standards will become more common and biospecimen collections will perhaps integrate itself into the standard of care.
