Effective data management at every step

The real value of biospecimens is the data they generate through techniques like genomic and proteomic analysis. The extensive amounts of data, results and reports need to be collated from a variety of these collaborating partners. Adding to the complexity, the timely and accurate flow of information is essential. In today's organization, the silos of independent research have broken down and cross-disciplinary collaboration with peers is an imperative—across university hospitals, pharma and biotech companies, contract research organizations and biobanks—we all need to work together. Our comprehensive informatics solutions for biobanks and biorepositories can foster the collaboration and sharing that are essential to advance science and make life saving discoveries.
