  • 7. Challenges and Drivers Challenges Technological challenges arising due to comparison of research results obtained by using specimens from two different biobanks as no two biobanks operate in a similar way. Funding and financial maintenance of public biobanks infrastructure becoming tougher in the long run. Automation in the area of sample storage and retrieval systems still immature for ultra low temperatures and longer durations.Opportunities Increased growth perceived in Europe and Asia owing to upcomingpopulation and disease based biobank projects. Automation increases the efficiency of a biobank. Increased LIMS capabilities enhance the prospects and degree ofautomation within the biobank community. Source: Frost & Sullivan. 7
