Sample registration in our LIMS is expedited using client-provided or manually generated manifests. A rigorous data quality control process ensures that all information matches. This registration and validation process usually occurs on the same day as receipt. Subsequently, samples proceed for storage or immediate processing, facilitated by courtesy emails to alert the relevant technicians. On request by clients, samples can be retrieved and shipped back to the client or destroyed.
