The biobank stores whole blood, plasma, serum, buffy coat, urine, and DNA from consenting Canadians between the ages of 3 to 79 years, on an ongoing basis.
Currently available samples stored for analysis in health studies.
The CHMS Biobank is enhanced by the national representability of the cohort and the possibility of merging the biospecimens' data with CHMS content which includes environmental chemical exposure, bone health, cardiovascular health, immunology, endocrinology, nutrition, and more.
By consenting to storage of their blood, urine and DNA for use in future health studies, participants contribute to advances in health care and research. We ensure scientific excellence while protecting the privacy and confidentiality of our respondents.
