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 2021 ISBER Annual Meeting & Exhibits.

Judges will review all new product submissions and identify and notify the finalists for an in-person product presentation during the opening day of the 2021 ISBER Exhibit Hall. Judges will circulate to review the finalists on-site and identify the winner. The winning product/vendor will be announced during the morning sessions following the opening of the Exhibit Hall.

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 2019 Annual Meeting (May 10, 2019). A product entered to the 2019 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 2021 Annual Meeting to qualify.
