  • Title: Cabri Description
    Descriptive info: Cabri Description.. What follows is a description of the demonstration project that has been co-funded by a grant from DG XII of the Commission of the European Union in 1996.. It is here for historical reasons and it is.. completely out-of-date.. CABRI is now maintained by the involved.. collections and information centers.. A better description of the project can be found in the.. manual of CABRI procedures.. Programme: Biotechnology (2nd call).. Demonstration Project: ERBBIO4-CT96-0231.. Coordinator: Louis Réchaussat.. Starting date: 01/12/96 Duration: 36 months.. Scientific officers: I.. Norstedt, C.. Martinez.. Current state of knowledge.. Biotechnology R D requires reliable, high quality, biological resources (such as bacteria, cell lines, fungi, probes, or hybridomas).. These are usually collected, stored and then made available from specialist resource centres who advertise their wares through catalogues.. The use of telecommunications networks such as the Internet should have eased this situation.. Unfortunately, customers in Europe wishing to order via this medium still face a number of problems.. The catalogues are often difficult to locate, they might not define whether the product is a replicate or original, and they are rarely linked together so that a search can cover a wide range of resources.. Furthermore, when a customer does question a variety of centres, geography and language add to the problems of making a considered choice.. Demonstration objectives.. CABRI will refine tools and test the formation of an integrated resource centre service linking catalogue databases of different organism types, genetic materials and other biologicals in Europe so that the user world-wide can access these relevant catalogues during one searching session through a common entry point and request/order products to be delivered to their place of work.. A prerequisite is that all aspects of the offered product must be of the highest possible quality.. Quality assurance standards will be devised and strictly adhered to, thus enabling the project to generate a unique image guaranteeing users efficient access to quality products.. CABRI is designed along the institute without walls structure and will accept new resource centres as the service evolves into a sustainable part of Europe's bioinformatics infrastructure.. This demonstration will determine the conditions and parameters necessary for the launching of an on-going service.. Work content.. There are four components in the implementation of the project:.. - Production of Collection Quality Management Standards manuals:.. The success of CABRI will depend completely on the quality of the delivered resources.. The centres will combine to prepare a series of quality management standards manuals based upon the national, European and international biotech standards and the generally accepted World Federation for Culture Collections (WFCC) guide-lines.. - Standardisation of information validation and dissemination:.. CABRI will create a single entry interface to the participating catalogues, rather than building a classical merged database of the component parts.. The catalogues will therefore be built to agreed information process standards, designed by an expert committee to cover staff expertise and technical support including the export/import format of data, agreements on data provision, minimum data sets for catalogue and other documents.. These aspects will adhere to ISO 9000 standards and consequently be  ...   resource centres will offer the user access to a common store of materials and so represent a one-stop-shop for European and other users.. CABRI will produce a number of business scenarios for the participants to decide how best to launch and sustain the service.. CABRI will use the extended audience of the individual resource centres to test these scenarios.. Why a demonstration phase now?.. Biotechnology is one of the key, expanding, high-tech areas of important economical impact.. Biotechnology has an increasing social and ethical impact on our lives.. Biotechnology relies upon using safe, reliable, cultures and related resources.. CABRI will contribute in the short term to the better management of living resources.. It will remove or diminish the need for duplication and improve Europe's ability to satisfy its own R D resource needs from within its own borders.. The economic impacts will be positive as they will keep expenditures for resources inside Europe, and thus support the national services already in place.. The project will widen the market for resources by advertising the availability of resources to new markets and advertise local services to scientists who will not only, hopefully, purchase cultures form the centre but also then deposit their cultures and other materials.. CABRI centres will play an on-going role in national and international biodiversity programmes by keeping these stocks in pure, genetically stable, forms.. Partners.. Coordinator:.. Mr..

  • Title: Cabri Guidelines
    Descriptive info: Cabri Guidelines.. Click here to read the guidelines.. Introduction to CABRI guidelines.. Europe has a wide variety of Resource Centres acting as supply and service organisations to the Scientific Community.. CABRI, the Common Access to Biological Resources and Information service, offers access to some of these centres.. This common interest gateway offers many advantages to both the centres and their user communities.. Instead of having to scrutinise a large number of databases, catalogues and other sources of information, CABRI offers world-wide access to these databases and allows one to simultaneously check on the availability of a particular type of organism or genetic resource and to order the required items once located.. Those include:.. Bacteria and Archea.. Fungi.. Yeast.. Plasmids.. Phages.. Animal and Human Cells.. DNA probes.. Plant Cells.. Plant Viruses.. The CABRI service has been built around quality and each member resource centre has therefore contributed to defining the set of technical specifications and procedures which define how they should handle each resource type.. These procedures are primarily based upon the centres own procedures but they have been peer reviewed and approved before the catalogue has been mounted online.. In this way users of CABRI are guaranteed the highest quality materials and services.. It is our intention to expand on the range of materials on offer by admitting other centres with acceptable quality standards.. Quality through knowledge.. Each of the collections within CABRI has a wealth of specialist expertise that backs up the storage and delivery of cultures.. A range of contract services is therefore also available and information  ...   guidelines for catalogue production which includes the instructions for the submission of a flat file for indexing to CABRI.. A CABRI Technical Committee has been established to implement and enforce these CABRI standards and this Technical Committee also regularly audits both laboratory practices and delivery standards and ensures that the CABRI information procedures as well as content are kept current and abreast of the latest developments.. CABRI aims to provide the most user friendly approach to biological resourcing anywhere in the world.. Contents of the Quality Guidelines.. Part 1: General guidelines for culture collections.. Part 2: Request and handling deposits.. Part 3: Maintenance of the deposits.. Part 4: Delivery to the customer.. These chapters cover procedures that as far as possible guarantee:.. the adherence of CABRI to international, European or national regulations as well as to ethical and safety standards in the field of biotechnology;.. the authenticity of biological materials;.. the purity of cultures or absence of contaminants;.. the processing of cultures including their quality control;.. the accuracy of data collected and supplied; punctuality and delivery standards.. Presentation of the quality procedures.. Part 1 of the guidelines provides a common view for all CABRI resources.. Thereafter, information is provided at different levels of detail starting with the basic core procedures common to all collections.. Then there are specific protocols that provide basic information on (fairly) standard techniques and finally, if relevant, there is detailed information on local procedures that might be unique to a member collection.. These local procedures have been independently refereed to ensure they are scientifically responsible..

  • Title: CABRI Procedures Manual
    Descriptive info: CABRI Guidelines.. Procedures Manual.. Introduction.. CABRI stands for Common Access to Biotechnological Resources and Information - an online service where users can search a number of European Biological Resource Centre catalogues.. The catalogues may be searched independently, or as one, and the located materials ordered online or by post.. The service has been designed, implemented, and is maintained by a number of European Biological Resource and Information Centres, all of whom are committed to the highest quality standards.. CABRI currently contains the catalogues of (in alphabetical order):.. BCCM.. , Brussels, Belgium,.. CABI Bioscience.. , Egham, UK.. , Utrecht, The Netherlands,.. CIP.. , Institute Pasteur, Paris, France,.. , Braunschweig, Germany,.. ECACC.. , Salisbury, UK,.. INRC.. , Genoa, Italy,.. , Aberdeen, UK.. Quality standards.. CABRI members must have a proven history of offering a public service, have clear mission statements and goals, and operate along established internal infrastructure standards.. All the resources and services on offer through CABRI have to be of a uniform high standard of quality.. Members must therefore have written internal quality assurance policies in place which define clear accession policies, quality control and distribution procedures.. These should be similar to, and certainly of the same quality, as the CABRI Guidelines for the organism or service in question.. These guidelines can be obtained from the CABRI WEB site at.. www.. All CABRI guidelines are regularly reviewed and refereed both internally and externally so that users can be assured they are being offered the highest quality materials and services.. CABRI and the European Biological Resource Centre Network (EBRCN).. CABRI was developed as a partially funded EC Demonstration project.. The Biological Resource Centres (BRCs) involved in this work will soon form the European Biological Resource Centre Network (EBRCN).. CABRI will continue to be the public, WEB-based, catalogue and information service of this group.. In addition to running CABRI, the EBRCN will:.. Establish a quality conscious group of biological resource centres who work together to guarantee that customers receive top quality materials;.. Improve access to individual centre’s catalogues by producing searchable electronic versions of their catalogues and mounting these in a common searchable environment (i.. e.. to maintain CABRI);.. Develop suitable bioinformatics solutions to the needs of the centres and their customers;.. Develop efficient methods to best use Europe’s resources in terms of reacting to the challenges of the biodiversity conventions;.. Attract users and producers of cultures with regard to depositing and storing essential materials;.. Provide a focal point for European centres to combine their efforts on matters of common importance.. The EBRCN will initially consist of:.. - Belgium; represented by: Dr.. J.. Swings, LMG, Laboratorium voor Microbiologie, Universiteit Gent, K.. L.. Ledeganckstraat 35, B-9000 Gent, Belgium.. RNAAS / Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures (CBS).. , P..

CABRI membership is open to any recognised European Biological Resource Centre, willing and able to work to the CABRI levels of quality.. There is no a priori limit on the size nor the materials in the collection.. To join CABRI, the applying centre must first notify the CABRI secretary of its interest.. The CABRI Technical Committee will then review all operating procedures and quality checks used in the centre, and the descriptions of catalogues and data entry procedures.. When the reviewing procedure is satisfactorily completed, the new member will be formally admitted to the CABRI service.. Acceptance implies that the centre will abide by the quality control and other operating procedures in place for the CABRI membership.. The catalogue of the new member will then be mounted on the CABRI server along with other subsidiary information such as a link from the CABRI Home Page to the centre’s WEB site where local information on prices and ordering policies can be stored.. A small "entry fee" of 3,500.. 00 Euro will be charged to help offset the costs of refereeing and catalogue preparation.. Review of operating procedures.. The applicant should submit its own representative operating procedure manuals to the Technical Committee.. These should include all relevant documents used in the centre, such as flow sheets, description of processes and internal quality management procedures.. Proof that these procedures are in place and in use must also be furnished, and the Technical Committee should be notified of any changes in procedures: audit trails are a  ...   In case of a disagreement between the TC member and collection manager, both views will be mentioned in the report.. This report will contain a confidentiality statement, to be signed by the auditor on behalf of the TC, before it is submitted to the Technical Committee.. The Technical Committee will then decide whether the procedures followed by the centre are sufficient to guarantee that the CABRI quality standards are met.. Any further recommendations will be sent by the Technical Committee to the centre, who will set a time scale for their implementation.. This will be submitted back to the TC.. Responsibility.. All audit records, reviews and implementation records are held by the Collection Manager.. It is the responsibility of the Collection Manager to verify that all corrective actions required by audits have been completed, within the agreed time scale.. If a member fails to implement the recommendations formulated after internal or external audits, the TC will formally request the centre to implement them.. If, after repeated requests, the centre still does not implement these recommendations, and thereby fails to adhere to the agreed quality standards, or if a centre no longer operates as a BRC offering biological resources, it will be asked to leave CABRI by the Executive Board.. 6.. The web site.. The public face of CABRI is the CABRI server.. Here, customers can search the catalogues using the SRS software which allows one to interrogate one or more catalogues at the same time.. The web site is currently maintained on the INRC server located at ABC in Genoa, Italy.. The content is maintained by the web-site manager but overall responsibility is held by the Web-site editor and editorial board.. At the present time the Scientific Secretary acts as the editor and the Technical Committee acts as editorial board.. Changes should first be sent to the Web-site editor who, in combination with the Technical Committee, will ensure that the changes are neither trivial nor conflicting.. Changes to documentation and web pages must be sent to the web-site editor at least 21 days in advance of their intended release date, who will send them to the web-site manager within a week.. The web-site manager will send the files to all mirror managers immediately.. This is to ensure that the editorial processes can take place so that mirror sites can arrange for translations etc.. Similarly, changes to the catalogues should be submitted by the collections to the web-site manager who will immediately modify the on-line catalogues and re-index them.. The automatic mirroring procedure will then implement those changes in the mirror sites.. No translation is foreseen.. These procedures will allow the CABRI server and all mirror sites to remain simultaneously concurrent and up-to-date.. 7.. Mirroring the CABRI web site.. (see.. In principle any CABRI centre can establish a mirror.. The content and the links from this mirror to other files fall however under the responsibility of the CABRI Technical Committee and mirror sites must ensure they do nothing to harm other members nor CABRI itself.. The CABRI mirrors must include a copy of the main CABRI site and can then include translations of the relevant pages into their national language.. The mirror must include all the main CABRI site distribution lists, without any exclusions and/or modifications, but must not include those sections of the original site that have not been designed for mirroring, e.. the restricted documentation section.. The mirror must be updated at least once a week and be updated whenever a request to do so comes from the main site..
