Sample Hub Series: Part 3 – Centralized Sample Management

How to generate big efficiencies in sample management.

We hear things like this from researchers and clinical operations all the time:

"Our storage costs are too high."

"Sample retrieval is too slow."

"We’re dealing with too many vendors."

"Sample utilization is terrible."

"I'm tired of searching multiple systems to find samples with inconsistent data."

All these issues create an industry-wide biobanking problem. But there’s a solution: A centralized sample management strategy.

A centralized plan for sample management handles the lifecycle of each sample in your collection. It gives you one platform to minimize risk, reduce costs, improve sample quality – and gain remarkable efficiencies.

A sample is vital for life sciences research, because it helps bring new treatments to patients across many therapeutic areas. However, a sample can only be used if the integrity has been protected through the cold chain, and associated data can be linked directly to each individual sample.

An integrated sample management solution such as Sample Hub™ collects, transports, processes, and analyzes samples within one global and interconnected platform.

We think of it like this: A sample may be labelled with a barcode – but it will never be regarded as just a number.
