AAA Post Sample

The eBook on how you can stay compliant and in control of your biobank storage and supply chain.

Thomas W. Flanagan

Keeping biological samples at the desired temperature is crucial to safeguarding their integrity. Should the temperature of a biological sample shift needlessly, it could cause further genetic or enzymatic biological activity, thereby compromising or ruining the quality.

To ensure the safety of these samples, it is important that your cold storage and supply chain are efficiently validated and closely monitored.

Why Validate and Monitor CTU/TCU’s and the Supply Chain Specifically?

When working with sensitive biological samples, control is everything. In this case, we’re talking about controlling the temperature to keep samples from deteriorating. Now, the only way to ensure that you have control, is by validating and monitoring the storage in which they’re kept and the means of which they’re being transported by.

By performing thermal validation and continuous monitoring of these processes, you have the necessary data, reports and alerts to ensure compliance. When done right, you can feel confident that your biological samples are safe to use after prolonged time in storage, and that they’re intact and viable after being transported.

To validate these processes, we recommend using wireless data loggers, whilst continuous monitoring should be setup using an environmental monitoring system.
