What's stored in our Biobank?

The LIB Biobank (at Museum Koenig, Bonn) is a specialized archive that is complementary to the other collections of the LIB museums (in Bonn and Hamburg) and is linked to them.
Here we store samples of animal DNA and fixed/viable tissue (etc.), associated with the corresponding biological data. Storage temperatures: ambient (sealed), -20°C, -80°C, -190°C (liquid nitrogen).
