Biobanking partnerships

NSW Health Pathology has developed a set of biobanking principles to explain how we support the retrieval, processing and/or release of NSWHP material and associated data.

These principles apply to new and existing local, national, and international biobanking activities.

We give priority to biobanks that use the NSW Health Statewide Biobank, as well as assess requests from other biobanks using these biobanking principles.
