Collection of human biological material – Special situation

Special situation: Building a collection in combination with a WMO study uitklapper, klik om te openen

Sometimes additional human biological material is collected from subjects taking part in a WMO study for unspecified research questions. For this situation the TCBio has asked the MREC Utrecht to conduct the review of this type of collection along with the WMO review procedure. For more information check the presentation below.

Procedure uitklapper, klik om te openen

See below for more information on the procedure for the combined review and the points for attention if biobank aspects are incorporated into the WMO protocol and the WMO information letter. Remember to enclose Form B2 - see under ‘File’.

Note: For the collection of human biological material left over after a WMO study, only a few specific points apply. See the ‘Procedure for MREC review of sub-biobanks and points for attention’. If you are not sure whether it concerns a new sub-biobank or residual material from a WMO study, please contact the Research Quality Coordinator of your division or the TCBio secretariat. 

For the compilation of a new file, for your response to questions or for amendments to approved files, please refer to the section under ‘File’.

Applicable when children are being included:

Because of the long-term nature of biobanks it is important that when children turn 16 and can decide on participation themselves, they are able to exercise this right. At the start of their participation it will be stated that the children will receive a letter for this purpose at that age. A renewed contact letter template has been drawn up for this. The original information letter with an explanation on the specific sub-biobank will be added as an annex.
