As one of the first institutions in the world to receive accreditation under the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Biorepository Program, our continued CAP and CLIA accreditations are a testament to our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of bio-storage to safeguard your biological samples so they are available for retrieval whenever they are needed from our biobank.
We understand that research goals and objectives vary from project to project so we give each client individual and customized attention to ensure “best fit” sample storage service. We provide short and long-term biological sample storage solutions for small academic and private labs all the way to large pharmaceutical clients and complex studies. If floor space is an issue for your laboratories, we can also store your freezers and liquid nitrogen tanks at our secure biobank sites.
Coupled with our LIMS management system we are able to provide global distribution with cold-chain logistics that is suitable for GMP grade samples. This allows us to record a sample’s temperature throughout its journey to or from your laboratory for low and high-touch samples and provide world class storage solutions.
What are the key challenges in biological sample storage for biobanking?
There are several key challenges when it comes to biological sample storage in a where the intention is to utilize the sample for future use and research.
1: Flexibility – labware format, data management, on site space and access are all issues to consider.
2: Cost – Infrascturtuce build out, ongoing service costs and time and resources for FTE and facilities investment should be considered over the lifetime of the sample which could be decades.
Disaster recovery – Storage location, back up generators that work to ensure your samples are protected from natural disaster is vital.
Storage Temperature – whether it be common temperature range such as -20°C, -80°C, or -190°C or a custom range, understanding what temperature your samples need to be stored at and investing in the right solution could make the difference in the viability of the sample in future.
