As biobanks strive to adopt best practice in sample curation, sample logistics remains a weak link in the
◼ Process inconsistencies include: variable length of time between sample post processing to storage and variable freezing profiles of samples stored in racks depending on where each tube is in the rack.
◼ Addressing such inconsistencies, then maintaining process consistency as biobank collections grow is challenging, however, automation provides a solution.
◼ Implementing automated storage, however, can be a slow and costly process. For some solutions, significant changes to infrastructure are required to provide long
term (up to 10 yr) capacity requirements upfront.
◼ The launch of SPT Labtech’s arktic XC represents a significant step in tackling the inconsistencies of sample logistics whilst providing a cost and time effective solution to the challenges of scalability.
