How Achiever Medical LIMS supports Biobanks and Biorepositories
As a Biobank or biorepository you want to offer your customers high quality biological samples. You need software in your lab that supports you as you provision, store, track, analyse, request, retrieve and dispatch your tissue samples. You have to work in line with your standard operating procedures as well as within any consent boundaries. Plus, you may also have to comply with regulatory legislation including the Human Tissue Act (HTA). As a result, knowing where your samples are and what’s happened to them is essential. This is where Achiever Medical Biobanking software can help.
Achiever Medical is a cloud-based LIMS system for Biobanks created in conjunction with Biobanks and biorepositories. It’s core features include:
- pre-built workflows to help you work within your process guidelines for consistency
- full traceability and auditing to meet compliance and quality control
- security to protect personal identifiable information (PII)
- tools so you can easily extend and configure Achiever Medical Biobanking software as your Biobanking operations expand
- a cloud-based LIMS easily deployed across multiple locations.
It also comes with a library of real-time, interactive dashboards so you can start tracking your Biobank’s performance straightaway.
“Achiever Medical makes it easier for us to operate our Biobank. We are constantly looking to optimise and improve the way we work. Our Biobank has grown considerably, and our Achiever Medical software continues to grow with us.”
Consistency is key to quality
Whether it’s consistency in data entry or how you work with researchers and collaborators, Achiever Medical’s data and process management tools help you instill quality. Data management tools within the LIMS ensure you’re recording your sample data consistently and as a result it’s easier and quicker for you and researchers to find samples. Similarly, process management tools ensure everyone is completing activities following the same steps. While in the background the software audits all data and sample updates giving you a complete audit trail and providing that all important evidence for compliance.
Biobank LIMS software that helps raise the profile of your Biobank
Also Achiever Medical is the only Biobanking system that sends your data automatically to the UKCRC Online Tissue Directory. So, you can save weeks in administration time while regularly submitting your sample holdings data to the directory. This helps raise the profile of your Biobank or biorepository to subsequently increase your sample turnaround.
