Sample Management without the complexity and cost of full automation
Biobanking is a critical facility in many drug discovery, pathology, and personalized medicine organisations. It enables researchers to effectively manage biological sample collections in an easily accessible repository. Unfortunately, while smaller biobanks and biorepositories still need to select tubes from cold racks straight from the freezer, they cannot necessarily afford the significant investment in robotics to fully automate the picking and placing of sample storage tubes from racks.
A new paper, courtesy of Ziath, describes an affordable semi-automated solution that provides reliable, high-throughput cherry-picking of frozen or thawed sample tubes from 96-position SLAS format racks with full data reporting.
