We understand the limitations of physical storage space and security required to centralise your study specimens. Utilising off-site storage increases your laboratory workspace by reducing the amount of storage cabinets at your site and secures your samples for both temperature and access, enabling you to make more productive use of your valuable resources. To address this need, we offer the option of a comprehensive specimen storage management service using ItemTracker®. This sample tracking software has been developed to solve the challenges associated with specimen management.

INTRODUCING OUR BIOLOGICAL SAMPLE STORAGE SERVICES

Short Term Sample Storage (minimum 1 year)

This service has been designed for organisations that have a short term storage need, either because refrigeration space has to be used for other purposes or you are moving/expanding your facility and need offsite sample storage while the work is being completed. Your boxes, plates or containers of samples will be stored at our facility and shipped back to you when required.

Long Term Sample Storage and Research Storage (minimum 3 years)

Many research projects today require long term storage facilities in order to meet increasing legislative commitments and regulations. Laboratory refrigeration space is at a premium and is ideally used for current research work. Our long term service is designed for you to store and recall samples when required. Why not move all your long term storage off site to our facilities, thus freeing up your own space for your immediate needs at your own local site.

Storage of serum/plasma and blood

This service is designed to resolve the problems you may have in storing batches of serum/ plasma or blood for on-going use in your research. When you order your plasma, we can store it for you and release it to you as and when you require it, thus freeing your storage space for samples.

GMP storage within validated equipment

This service is designed to meet increasing legislative commitments and GMP regulations. Validated laboratory refrigeration space is at a high premium and involves significant commitment and effort for several members of staff.

Our GMP service is designed to enable storage in validated refrigeration cabinets, including backup freezer capacity, enabling provision of a dedicated GMP backup freezer for your contract. Samples may be recalled as required, so why not move all your long term storage off site to our facilities, thus freeing up your own space and staff time for your immediate needs at your site.
