The CEINGE-Bitecnologie Avanzate Bank of Biological samples was started in 2006 and collects biological samples derived from patients affected by neuromuscolar disordes, cardiac and cardiovascular diseases, and autoimmune diseases.The Biobank includes a fully computerized cryogenic room containing nine cryogenic tanks for the preservation of biological samples. It has a fully automatic programmable logic controller supervision system installed on a personal computer that checks the nitrogen flow to all cryogenic tanks from a liquid nitrogen reservoir. The aim is to obtain coplete control of the cryogenic system. The biosamples electronic administraton system is subdivided in two databases: one dedicated to the donors’ personal data; the other contains the scientific information regarding the biological samples.
