New Literature Available for Autoscribe’s Biobank and Biorepository Management Software

Autoscribe has released a new brochure describing the use of their highly configurable Matrix Tracker software for biobank and biorepository applications. The software can be used to help track and trace the ever increasing number of bio-specimens (tissue, fluids, DNA samples, slides etc.) stored in bio-banks and bio-repositories.  

The management of sample repositories and biobanks is one of the most important issues currently facing pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and research organizations.

It requires the registration of samples as collected and tracking of their location at all times including recording a chain-of-custody.  It may also include the allocation of studies to specific storage locations, the use of storage maps, the need for parent-child sample relationships, donor details with consent and ethical approval processing and much more.


Autoscribe Limited has implemented Matrix Tracker systems for customers including clinical research organizations and pharmaceutical companies. Important issues that customers cite when choosing a bio-banking system that matches their requirements include:

  • Compliance with current and future regulatory requirements (e.g. HTA, GCLP, MHRA, FDA 21 CFR Part 11and other similar guidelines)
  • A convenient way of registering and accessioning samples within the system including the easy retrieval of documents such as patient consent forms
  • Easy log-in, log-out and moving of samples within the repository or bio-bank
  • Storage location tracking, auditing and reconciliation
  • Ability to produce a chain-of-custody for every sample
  • A full audit trail for samples
  • A future proofed system that can meet today's requirements and can be configured or re-configured to meet future requirements

Autoscribe Limited is a leader in the development and supply of innovative configured solutions. Our Matrix Tracker systems are supplied with a unique set of configuration tools that allow further configuration and re-configuration of the system.

Autoscribe also offers systems for laboratory information management (LIMS) as well as instrument calibration and maintenance, stability testing, customer complaints management, support management, training records management and resource planning systems.
