The CIB has developed a platform for sample tracking software that allows a sample (biofluid or tissue) to to tracked to the specific cell in a box. Here at the CIB, we consider this a ‘virtual’ biorepository, as the samples may be housed at a single hub, multiple hubs, or each participating location may store their own samples while our tracking software keeps tabs on it all. This software also allows each site to print their barcoded labels. This allows sites to enjoy the flexibility of enrolling patients and securing samples on their schedule rather than having to wait for labels to be distributed from a central printer. The samples are linked to clinical data, which would allow the CIB to create a search engine for your inventory based on clinical data. The platform possesses flexible search mechanism.
