The ongoing advances in cancer immunotherapy together with precision medicine may promise a bright future for patients. Learn about the two most common biomarkers in clinical trials that are critical for the drug development process.
Logistics can be one of the most complex aspects of successful clinical trials because samples shipped from study sites for testing at a central laboratory must be maintained within a very limited temperature range. Cold chain or refrigerated logistics, where temperature is controlled in the shipping environment, often brings added challenges and expense. LabConnect provides validated cold-chain solutions, however controlled ambient shipping solutions are becoming more important in cases where whole blood samples are required by the testing laboratories. This is seen most readily in PBMC and other analyses where high cellular viability and yields are critical.
