Biological Resource Center (CRBIP)

Mission

To preserve and make accessible for research, training and quality control purposes, historical and newly collected microbial and human bioresources.

The CRBIP is a transversal biobank infrastructure that includes microbial and human specimen collections of Institut Pasteur.
The CRBIP receives, maintains, characterizes and supplies biological resources globally, in compliance with health and environmental safety standards and under applicable laws and regulations.

Our expertise includes:

  • Collection of Institut Pasteur - CIP
  • 25k bacterial strains in one of the oldest collections in the world cip@pasteur.fr
  • 200 pathogenic viral strains isolated from humans or animals cvip@pasteur.fr
  • A growing number of yeast and filamentous fungal strains cfip@pasteur.fr
  • Pasteur Cultures of Cyanobacteria - PCC
  • 750 monoclonal strain cultures representing the taxonomic and functional diversity of Cyanobacteria collectionpcc@pasteur.fr
  • National Collection of Cultures of Microorganisms- CNCM
  • 4K microbial strains >1.5k cell lines
  • Integrated Collections for Adaptive Research in Biomedicine: ICAReB-biobank
  • 150k samples and clinical data from patients and healthy volunteers icareb-biobank@pasteur.fr

What we do:

  • accept deposits of microbiological materials
  • lyophilize strains
  • receive and process human fluid biological materials
  • characterize the biological materials phenotypically, genotypically, and functionally
  • preserve and distribute microbial and human bioresources
  • offer training and expertise
