About CellBank

CellBank is a national collection of samples donated by children and young adults with a haematological malignancy and is open to all patients with these conditions, whether they are taking part in a clinical trial or not.  It is a valuable resource for UK-based researchers into haematological disorders, including rare conditions.

CellBank has been granted ethical approval for collection of additional samples for banking as well as for collection leftover diagnostic samples.  Where consent has been given, we ask clinical teams to send samples of peripheral blood and bone marrow (3-5 ml) or cerebrospinal fluid (0.5 ml) at all clinical time points.  Detailed recruitment and sample collection instructions can be found on our Recruitment Instructions page.

In addition to collecting samples for banking, we also provide sample collection and processing for the ALL2011 trial genomics substudy.
