Viva, the Largest Italian Biobank to Store 5 Million Samples

Viva will be one of the largest Italian research biobanks. It will develop on about 700 square meters and can contain up to 5 million samples. 

The structure will be divided into three areas: one for samples collected according to the highest quality standards; one for historical samples, which could be useful for future research; the third is intended to host samples from other structures facing critical situations for transitional periods. It will be carried out in collaboration with the Siad group. The entire project is worth 3.5 million euros for the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS). It will be ready in the first half of 2024.
