About Us

NHLS Biobank is unique in that it encompasses components of multiple Biobank, such as cell culture, genetics, cancer and molecular biology, histology and cytology, infectious diseases, DNA\RNA bank on health subjects. This will recognise the emerging role of managing bio specimens and will also recognise the role of DNA barcoding in addressing components of biotechnology development for the benefit of society and collaborations with the global community.
The global community also recognises a response to managing scientific collections and the role of bio specimens within the biodiversity, biotechnology and biomedical themes. The recognition of the Biobank as a key component of the human tissue repository will contribute to making the NHLS Biobank a successful knowledge-hub.
