New approaches to sample identification tracking and technologies for maintaining the quality of stored samples
By Dr John Comley

Safeguarding the quality of stored samples (both compounds and biospecimens) must be the driving ethos in compound management stores and biorepositories.

Yet there are few innovations in available sample storage technologies that can help them easily identify poor sample quality or monitor sample degradation and so minimise erroneous downstream analytical results.

Recent advances in sample ID and tracking undoubtedly give much greater confidence upholding an unbroken chain of custody. New storage tube configurations will contribute to enhanced screening efficiencies and greater reliability and advanced data management systems can improve overall sample intelligence...
