Biological specimen tube selection and labeling is a critical part of maintaining the validity and reliability of test results. Read on to find out more.
Effective sample management underlies the reliability and validity of any research carried out in laboratory settings. The quality of your results is incumbent on the quality of your samples, which is—in turn—determined by the efficacy of your sample management workflow. You risk compromising valuable data if you do not collect samples carefully, or record and store them precisely.
The term sample management is used to describe an entire workflow comprising the selection, collection, storage, and retrieval of samples plus their relevant data. It is essential to achieve optimal process and quality control (QC) in the laboratory, and if any step in the sample management chain is overlooked, it can have costly ramifications.
If you are a laboratory scientist with a large number of samples stored in freezers, which may be from many different projects and stored in multiple locations, then you will almost certainly have a huge amount of information at your disposal, and more often than not, this kind of data overload can feel overwhelming.
What you need is a system that has been tailored to your very needs, one that can collate all of this information in one easy to use, intuitive, and (perhaps most importantly) safely backed up system. This is where Samples comes in.
