Sample preparation and processing are crucial steps in immuno-oncology, cell-based and gene therapies, and diagnostics and obtaining timely, high-quality preparation and processing services on a global basis is a universal challenge. Refined services with global experience and widespread, proven resources, can eliminate concerns over long distance shipments, variable transport conditions, and the quality and consistency of laboratory techniques and biostorage.
Here we consider three keys to success to a successful global sample processing: specimen collection and transport, consistency in analytical technique and biostorage. You want to ensure that every sample’s integrity will be upheld throughout its life cycle, wherever in the world it goes. Before selecting a central lab partner, determine how reliable the central lab is in the following areas.
