How New Technology Will Impact Compound Management
The difference that technology has had on compound management and the benefits it brought to the lab in terms of efficiencies and resource savings are immense.
Today, samples are stored in 2D barcoded tubes, from different manufacturers, in either large freezers or liquid nitrogen tanks. However, these storage facilities tend to be somewhere without a nice, insulated lab with Internet and Wi-Fi. This leads to issues even with enterprise-scale database systems, barcoded tubes & racks and systems to track them. Which means that scientists still must write on paper which tank, rack, shelf, or freezer a sample is in.
In a new educational paper - sample management guru - Neil Benn (CEO of Ziath) shares his views on the beneficial impact that new mobile digital technology and artificial intelligence innovations are likely to have on tracking and tracing samples in compound management facilities.
