CardioVascular BioBank


The CardioVascular BioBank (CVBB) collects, processes and stores human tissue (subject to patient consent), which would otherwise be discarded during cardiovascular surgery.

The close proximity of the operating theatres to the IEKM enables – in addition to the the customary storage of tissue segments – collection of live-cell data. This, as well as relevant clinical data, is then integrated in an anonomysed form into the CVBB and made available for scientific studies.

The goal of the CVBB is to archive the for cardiac reasarch invaluable human probes for current and future science. Since its opening in 2017 samples from more than 1000 patients, over 1600 tissue samples and 1600 blood samples could already be collected, and we are indebted to all tissue donors

The CVBB operates under the ethics committee approval 393/16

We are happy to provide more information via EMail: IEKM.CVBB@uniklinik-freiburg.de

The CVBB is member of the Deutschen Biobanken-Register.
