Biobank for Biofilms, Implants and associated Tissues
BIT was established in 2009 and is located at Hannover Medical School (MHH). It represents an important link between the clinical activities of the various medical disciplines and basic research in the field of biofilm-associated implant infections.
Collected swabs from infected natural and artificial surfaces, all implants with biofilm buildup and associated tissues and body fluids such as blood and saliva.
The aim of the research is a better understanding of complex micro- and molecular biological processes that lead to the emergence of implant infections.
(Collected samples per year)
The samples are stored at -80 ° C.
