Back from the Europe Biobank Week 2019


CloudLIMS is back from the Europe Biobank Week 2019 held at the Music and Congress Center of Lübeck (MuK), Germany, from October 8-11, 2019. We showcased our purpose-built, in the cloud SaaS LIMS with zero upfront cost, CloudLIMS, at the Europe Biobank Week. We demonstrated the indispensable role of a Biorepository LIMS in managing biorepository data, such as biological samples, sample sources and patient consent, automate workflows, generate personalized reports, and follow regulatory guidelines such as EU GDPR, 21 CFR Part 11, ISO 20387, and HIPAA. We also presented a poster titled “Empowering Biobanks to Comply with the EU GDPR for Personal Data Protection using a Cloud-based LIMS” at the event. The poster delineates the EU GDPR guidelines for personal data protection of the citizens of the European Union and the crucial role of a LIMS in helping biobanks follow the EU GDPR guidelines. If you missed the chance to see our poster presentation live, you can download the poster from our resources section.

Europe Biobank Week 2019 (EBW 2019) is one of the largest conferences on biobanking in Europe. This year’s theme was “Biobanking for a healthier world”. Over 600 attendees from 30 different countries attended the event. The 4-day event featured short courses on GMP and GCP, informative scientific and vendor workshops, more than 50 exhibitions, scientific sessions, talks by eminent industry leaders, a large number of poster presentations, and many more. We got the opportunity to interact with several delegates. It was a great learning experience for us.
