Pros and Cons of Storing Samples, Build or Buy?Recorded December 14, 2016With the annual projected growth of biospecimens increasing and the stronger focus on precision medicine, the need to store samples is becoming more of emphasis for both industry and academics. The ability to actively track samples and to safeguard integrity during this long storage period is critical to ensure that accurate data can be generated. Evaluating all these concerns will be vital to determine a build or buy scenario for one’s biostorage needs. This webinar will outline the process that should be considered when deciding to build a sample storage facility or to outsource work to an existing biorepository.
BioVisualization: Effective Mining and Interpretation of Laboratory Results DataRecorded May 26, 2016The ever-increasing volume of clinical data — including laboratory data — represents a substantial resource that can provide a foundation for the improved understanding of disease presentation, response to therapy and health care delivery processes. Data mining supports these goals by discovering, unraveling and, in some cases, anticipating similarities and relationships between data elements in large datasets.
Best Practices in Acquiring, Tracking and Maintaining Biological Study Samples for Complex Study DesignsRecorded March 17, 2016Increasingly complex biomarker and other specialized testing requirements present a significant challenge to sample testing, logistics and storage. Drug development for early stage and adaptive protocol designs requires a comprehensive, real-time grasp of exactly what samples you have, where they are, and how they are collected, shipped, processed and stored especially from the moment of collection.
