Protecting Cell Viability

Various types of unwanted pre-analytical variability can be introduced at numerous points in the life of a sample. We reduce freeze thaw cycles to a minimum by aliquoting, or dividing samples into many parts, and use step-down freezing to protect cell viability.

Laboratory Information Management System

A sample is only as good as the data appended to it. Our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) is integrated with our data management system to manage biospecimen data as efficiently as possible. The LIMS provides flexibility and adaptability while increasing automation and throughput of complex plate-based assays, providing advanced handling of microtiter plates and arrays.

Delivering Quality

We designed our laboratories to support the needs of researchers seeking the highest quality of biospecimens. Our lab processing services provide qualified and well-documented genomic processing, including DNA/RNA extraction. Through our integrated workflows, we are able to provide a comprehensive and flexible processing system.
