Achiever Biobanking LIMS makes it easier for researchers to find you, work with you and keep coming back!

To stand out from the crowd your Biobank needs to be responsive, adaptable and easy to work with and your laboratory information management system (LIMS) should be the same

How Achiever LIMS software supports your Biobank or Biorepository

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 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 LIMS Biobanking software can help.

Achiever LIMS for Biobanks is a configurable, secure web-based Laboratory Information Management System created in conjunction with Biobanks and biorepositories. Its specifically designed Biobank core features include:

  • pre-built workflows using Achiever LIMS Laboratory Execution System (LES) to support your team to work within your process guidelines (such as ISBER Best Practices) for consistency
  • full traceability and auditing, including record versioning, to meet regulatory compliance and quality control
  • security and AES-256 data encryption ‘at rest’ to protect personal identifiable information (PII) and sensitive commercial data
  • low-code, no-code configuration tools so you can easily extend and adapt Achiever LIMS for Biobanks as your operations expand, and new regulations or SOPs are introduced
  • a web-based LIMS that supports multiple deployment options including on-premises, public and private cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) to enables secure access across multiple locations
  • modern authentications methods and protocols to centralise and secure system and data access.

Achiever LIMS for Biobanks also comes with a library of real-time, interactive dashboards so you can start tracking your Biobank’s performance straightaway.

 “Achiever LIMS 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 LIMS 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 LIMS’s data and process management tools help you instil 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 or biorepository

Also Achiever LIMS 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.

Unlock your samples

With inventory management, online sample request portals and automatic publishing of sample holding data to the UKCRC Tissue Directory

Meet researcher needs

Through prospective sample requests, comprehensive sample searches and dashboards showing trends and the most popular requests

Drive prompt turnaround

Using consistent fulfilment processes, automated notifications for new requests, issue tracking and dashboards to monitor progress and timings

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:

  • Achiever Medical Researcher Portal Home Pagerequest 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.
