Annually, ISBER awards the Outstanding New Product Award to highlight a new, innovative product in the biobanking field. A team of expert judges from diverse sectors will select one product to receive the Outstanding New Product Award at the 2023 ISBER Annual Meeting & Exhibits.

Judges will review all new product submissions and identify and notify the finalists for a virtual product presentation in advance of the 2023 ISBER Annual Meeting Exhibit Hall. The winning product/vendor will be announced at the ISBER 2023 Annual Meeting, in-person in Seattle, USA.

Candidate products will be evaluated on the following four categories:

  1. Technical innovation and originality
  2. Anticipated impact on the biobanking community
  3. Data that support the position, value, and viability of the product
  4. The anticipated market demand.

For a product to qualify as “new”:

  • The product must have been introduced after the 2022 Annual Meeting (May 20, 2022). A product entered to the 2022 Annual Meeting is not eligible for award this year.
  • The product must be commercially available with part number, pricing, and reasonable lead time.

*Please note that applicants must be exhibiting at the ISBER 2023 Annual Meeting to qualify.
