With permission from the DZHK administrative office. The DZHK (Deutsches Zentrum für Herz-Kreislauf-Forschung e.V.; German Center for Cardiovascular Research) is a joint cooperation of twenty-eight institutions in seven locations throughout Germany to develop a common research strategy. They developed a data catalogue with metadata and data as well as information about available biological materials from all their studies. For more information on the data catalogue and access to actual data and biosamples please visit . This version contains the metadata part only. The form Biobanking Basic Set is used to document the quality of samples of the Basic Set. The Basic Set consists of EDTA plasma, serum, citrate plasma, buffy coat and urine. The documentation is to be performed according to the DZHK's Biobanking SOPs, which can be accessed at (or for the German language versions). The SOPs for this form are "Collection of Biomaterials from Blood and Urine" (version 1.1, valid as of 15/12/2014) and "Biomaterial Processing Basic Set" (version 1.1, valid as of 15/12/2014) for the English language versions, and "Gewinnung von Biomaterialien aus Blut und Urin" (version 1.1, valid as of 15/12/2014) and "Biomaterialverarbeitung Basis-Set" (versin 1.1, valid as of 15/12/2014) for the German language version. The collection of biomaterials is carried out in accordance with local regulations. Deviations from the following requirements will not result in the exclusion of the patient/test subject from the study. Collection of blood: Appropriate means of disposal for needles, swabs, etc. Period of rest in unaltered body position prior to blood collection: 5 minutes. Site of collection on patient/test subject: cubital vein. Tourniquet time < 1 minute. Specimens should be drawn in the following order: serum, citrate, EDTA. The tourniquet should be released once collection of blood has begun, i.e. when blood flow into the primary receptacle is visible. No repeat clenching of the fist. Invert immediately while exchanging the primary receptacles. Store the primary receptacles vertically in the primary receptacle/tube rack. Collection of urine: Label the urine cup using the sticker intended for that purpose. Inform the patient/test subject using the information sheet “Collecting a Mid-Stream UrineSpecimen”. Spontaneous urine collection. Immediately after urine specimen is given: document the time the urine specimen was collected and the appearance of the urine on the Biomaterial Collection Form. If patient/test subject is actively menstruating: Make a note of this on the Biomaterial Collection Form.
