potentially identifiable

Information from which identifiers have been removed and replaced with a code, which is kept separately from it. This is usually used where there may be a reason to collate different intakes of information relating to a particular person or where the participant could potentially need to be informed of an outcome. It should be noted that all human tissue is considered potentially identifiable, whether or not the identifiers have been removed, since it contains the donors DNA.
