Biobanks now play a crucial role in biomedical research, but the sheer numbers of samples stored means that the risk of loss or non-compliance is not an option.
Not only is absolute sample integrity coupled with a proven audit trail critical to the success of the research, the reputation and viability of a biobank is at stake. Often the research samples in a Biobank are simply irreplaceable.
Research is only as good as the quality, integrity and history of the samples
Manual monitoring and recording at the level of detail needed is simply not nearly rigorous enough and risky. Biobank sample storage monitoring systems that do not include some form of remote alarming, cannot be judged truly fail-safe.
The whole Tutela temperature monitoring system has been designed so that data simply cannot be lost; on-board device storage means that even with significant power outages, full compliance is maintained as there are no gaps in the records.
