The Biobank Côte d’Azur is integrated into the Laboratory of Clinical and Experimental Pathology (LPCE) of Nice.
Created in 2004, the Biobank Côte d’Azur is a national and international health resource with unparalleled research opportunities, open to all bona fide health researchers, including academic and industrial collaborators.
MISSION & VISION
Modern pathology requires the new generation of pathologists to assimilate a variety of aspects of biology. In addition to the essential morphological analysis of lesions, the development of molecular pathology leading to the analysis of more and more complex sequences, and of immunopathology, soon with the use of multiplexing immunochemical techniques, as well as the analysis of many biomarkers of liquid biopsies, have led pathologists to become both molecular biopathologists and immunopathologists.
The aim of the Biobank Côte d’Azur – and of the LPCE in a more global view - is to always optimize the quality of the analyses and of reports transferred to the clinician, but also to develop and participate in research projects of excellence.
Thereby, the Biobank Côte d’Azur has been committed to a quality approach in its services. It is accredited by the ISO 15189 norm and certified to the NF S96-900 standard. It offers large collections of biological samples for research and it is convinced that participation in national and international research projects contributes to innovation and technological development.
