Biosample lifecycle management for your cohort and epidemiological studies
Thermo Fisher Scientific supports public health research through comprehensive inventory management system and workflow, facilitating the collection of samples and data for largescale cohort studies. By following current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) we enhance your productivity and enable you to focus on your research while we maintain your samples’ integrity. From sample collection to long-term storage of biological samples, our standardized processes provide well-annotated, quality data for each sample throughout all lifecycle stages and minimize pre-analytical variability to ensure accurate downstream analysis.
Current research methods hold the key to the future of personalized medicine, increasing the need for quality control across the workflow. Our project managers ensure quality by providing real-time availability of kit inventory, detailed feedback on sample packaging at clinical sites, and tracking GMP kit components, all of which impact sample integrity for downstream analysis.
Sample Collection for Clinical Trials & Longitudinal Studies: Bulk Supplies VS. Collection Kits
When setting up a longitudinal study, every decision revolving around sample management, from collection, lab processing, storage, dissemination, to data management, is crucial to its success. For collection of participants' biospecimens, one aspect that requires significant thought and planning is how the needed patient samples (e.g., whole blood, tissue) will be collected at the sites. Sponsors, CROs, and clinical investigators must decide if they are going to provide their sites with the tubes and other supplies in bulk, or provide patient-specific or visit-specific collection kits.
