Biobank SSPA Cadiz

The Biobank Unit belonging to the Biomedical Research and Innovation Institute of Cadiz (INiBICA) is a research support platform whose mission is to act as a link between medical collectors, researchers and patients who donate biological samples for biomedical research purposes, making sure that this interaction takes place under the current legal provisions and with due ethical guarantees.

INiBICA's Biobank is framed within the Andalusian Public Health System (SSPA) Biobank, an initiative of the Department for Equality and Social Well-being of the Junta de Andalucia; which, in turn, forms part of the National Biobank Network Platform. Moreover, INiBICA's Biobank is authorized to operate for the purposes of biomedical research and the treatment of human biological samples, with registration number B.0000505 in the National Biobank Register (ISCIII), in accordance with the provisions of RD 1716/2011. Please note the registration number is that ofthe University Hospital Puerta del Mar.

Currently the centres that actively make up the INiBICA's Biobank in the province of Cadiz are as follows:
  • HUPM, Puerta del Mar University Hospital (central office)
  • HUPR, Puerto Real University Hospital
  • HJerez, Jerez de la Frontera University Hospital
  • CTTC, Centre for Transfusion, Tissues and Cells of the province of Cadiz
  • HLínea, La Línea de la Concepción Hospital

The human resources dedicated to the INiBICA's Biobank Research Area are:

  • A specialist senior technician (Biotechnologist) in the HUPM node
  • A specialist technician in the HUPR node
The other centers (HJerez, CTTC, HLínea) carry out biobank work in collecting and archiving samples with the healthcare resources available at the Pathological Anatomy Unit (HJerez and HLínea) or at the CTTC. The main objective of the INiBICA's Biobank is to improve the quality and quantity of donations for the SSPA Biobank, developing in our node an Andalusian reference center for the Registry of Sample Donors for Biomedical Research (RDMI) and the Digital Biobank . The results achieved to date have been satisfactory, since INiBICA's Biobank accounts for 10% of all the activity of the SSPA Biobank in terms of the number of registered parent samples.
