Digital Sample Management of Biologicals

Overcoming the challenges

by Ziath

A major issue in using today’s databases for storing sample and compound inventory information is the diverse nature of the samples available. Especially as drug discovery moves away from solely chemical-based libraries towards biologicals in libraries, the existing database software may not be able to record all the correct parameters, or tracking tags, for biological samples. This leads to biological reagents and samples being stored in multiple databases, which makes the process of ordering and booking out material far more complicated.
