    Just double-checking,
    There is only one UK ME Biobank: incorporates Royal Free/UCL/London school of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

    Well, there will be a fatigue one once MEGA gets theirs set up, which they will call a CFS/ME biobank.

    All of the blood samples that are now stored in the ME Biobank are from people who have Canadian and/or Fukuda defined ME/CFS

    As everyone has a very detailed clinical assessment prior to acceptance we can also detect if they meet other criteria such as SEID

    Have no doubts that this biobank has been set up correctly, I just have absolutely no faith in what MEGA plans to do.
