Free Webinar - Laboratory Processing, Automation, and Analysis for Biobank Samples and Clinical Biospecimens
Biobanks and clinical translational research centers play a critical role in the research information network, and often requires a LIMS (Laboratory Information Managmenet System) integrated workflow from sample receipt through processing, analysis, and storage/preservation. Today, many labs are facing bottlenecks in their workflow. Michael Blackburn, a senior research investigator at Sanofi-Aventis, commented about lab bottlenecks in a recent article "Improving Workflows In An Analytical Laboratory", "Analytical labs face a number of bottlenecks, depending of course on what they are analyzing and whether or not they are in a regulated environment".
