Biobank LIMS delivering more than sample management and tracking
“Being able to create very specific and nuanced queries in Achiever LIMS saves me so much time on a daily basis. I know if a researcher asks for 200 breast samples from patients within different positive and/or negative parameters I can quickly and easily run a query in Achiever LIMS to find them.”
Unlike traditional LIMS and sample tracking software, Achiever LIMS software for Biobanks and biorepositories has comprehensive donor profiling and management including the ability to capture disease episode data. As a result, researchers can really home in on the samples they need – quickly and easily.
What’s more, the software solution’s sophisticated AES256 at rest encryption and permissions system ensure personal data is protected and only available to those with the appropriate access levels.
Improving tissue sample visibility and access for researchers
Achiever LIMS Biobanking software also has an online Researcher Portal. Researchers can use this to securely search your tissue Biobank to:
- request individual samples
- make prospective sample requests
- track sample request progress
- raise any queries or questions
- acknowledge sample receipt
- and finally, if required, return sample.
And, above all, the LIMS solution’s data security features ensure you’re in complete control of what samples are visible and available for requests.
Plus, our LIMS software comes with a range of customer relationship management (CRM) functionality, so you can manage and track all your interactions with your researchers and your other contacts. This includes being able to send targeted email communications as well as seeing what samples they’ve requested and how often. You can then analyse this data to predict and plan for possible future tissue sample demand. So, you’re improving your customers’ experience which means they’ll be more likely to work with you again and recommend you.
A LIMS for Biobanks with comprehensive sample movement tracking and traceability
As a Biobank or biorepository you’re constantly transferring and moving samples. For example, as you receipt them and ship them for analysis, storage and request fulfilment. You need full traceability of each sample as well as know exactly where your samples are currently located. Achiever LIMS has inbuilt dispatch and receipt management capabilities which allow you to track each sample’s movement. The LIMS automatically audits each sample as it is dispatched and receipted. As a result, you have a complete chain of custody and can see a sample’s current status and location at any time and point it its journey.
