Researchers interested in MARBiobanc samples must send the properly completed Sample Request Form to the MARBiobanc secretary along with the following documentation.
- Request form
- Ethics Committee report of the requesting institution, if applicable
- Scientific Committee report of the requesting institution, if applicable
- Funding’s supporting documentation of the project
Once the request and the documents requested had been received, MARBiobanc will send it to the biobank’s external committees: the Ethic and Scientific.
In the case the request is accepted by the committees, a material transfer agreement (MTA) will be signed between both centers. Samples will then be sent upon signing said agreement.
Internal requests of Parc de Salut Mar (PSMAR), do not need to sign this agreement.
If requested samples also need genomic services it will be necessary to fill the MARGenomics request form.
