A Biobank is defined in the legislation as a non-profit entity that hosts collections of biological samples for diagnosis or research, following rigorous quality controls.
Our Biobanks have a collection of DNA samples from infertile patients that is unique in the country, coming from patients who voluntarily and from different Spanish centres cede their samples for research.
In these Biobanks, another collection of DNA samples from donors is collected in order to access the genetic map of the donors without interfering with their anonymity. Given the low probability of a future disease problem, the conservation of the samples allows us to study the DNA in order to genetically evaluate the newborn, providing greater confidence and peace of mind in everything related to the birth and development of the baby.
This service is free of charge and guarantees access to the recipient’s samples indefinitely. In order to have the sample, all that is needed is an official medical report to be evaluated by our geneticists.
