This application form should be completed by investigators, managers or collection custodians who wish to use NSW Health Statewide Biobank (NSWHSB) services for the collection, processing and storage of biospecimens.
Application forms to access biospecimens and data are managed by the Collection Custodian.
In cases where the NSWHSB is the custodian or supports the custodianship, this application form should be completed to apply for the access and release of biospecimens stored at the NSWHSB and their associated data.
The application form provides the details of the materials and/or associated data required by the Researcher. Additional information is also requested in regards to the ethics and governance of the project, which is required prior to the approval to access the samples.
The degree of detail supplied in the application will be dependent on whether the end use of the material and/or the data is requested for use in health research. Each application is forwarded to the collection custodians for review and approval prior to the transfer of specimens.
For most collection custodians this will be in accordance with their usual application and approval process for materials.
