DESCRIZIONE
The 25.000 participants of the Moli-sani Project, are recruited from city-hall registries. All participants provided written informed consent to blood samples for DNA analysis, biochemical measurements and questionnaires to collect personal and clinical information. The samples collected are identified with a barcode to distinguish both the patient and his/her biological fluids (pellets, serum, plasma citrate, EDTA plasma, urine). A central archive ensures the availability of information of subjects participating in the studies. To facilitate the recovery of samples inside the tank or the -80°C freezer, an ad hoc software has been developed. The software keeps track of all samples and of their location. The Moli-Bank contains 700,000 biological samples, stored in liquid nitrogen that in the tanks is constantly kept under control by an electronic system. The access to the biobank controlled and allowed only to authorized personnel.
