    MCHRI Biobank

    The MCHRI biobank provides a standardised, streamlined approach to manage the biobanking needs of funded projects, and provide ongoing support for the collection, storage, retrieval and analysis of a range of biological specimens including blood, tissue, saliva, urine and faecal material. We operate in keeping with international quality standards to offer researchers high-quality solutions which align with their project aims, timelines and budgets.

    The biobanking service is available to all researchers within Monash University, MHTP and Monash Health at no cost for the initial consultation*.

    We work with research teams on a collaborative or fee-for-service basis to provide advice and assistance with a range of activities including specimen collection, handling (and specialised shipping if required), storage, retrieval and analysis. We can provide end-to-end solutions starting at the grant writing stage of the project or custom solutions for specific project needs, recognising that sample integrity is key to the success of biobanking projects or sub-projects. Our -80 degree freezers are conveniently located at our secure Monash Health site and have safety mechanisms to prevent temperature deviations if the primary compressor should fail, as well as a monitoring system that notifies our personnel 24 hours/7 days, should temperatures deviate from their acceptable range.

    To organise an initial consultation and discuss your specific project needs, please contact Dr Aya Mousa by email on: aya.mousa@monash.edu
