INDIANAPOLIS, May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BioStorage Technologies, a global provider of comprehensive sample management solutions for the bioscience industry, including storage, cold chain logistics and virtual sample intelligence, continues the expansion of its global footprint through on-site sample management services. This unique consultative approach embeds BioStorage Technologies' highly trained scientific and sample management personnel on-site at the client's location; thereby these critical sample assets remain close to the research bench and allow researchers to focus on their core competencies. 

The integration of on-site services is another example of BioStorage Technologies' complete life-cycle approach to providing comprehensive sample management solutions. It combines the flexibility of maintaining samples close to the research laboratory while providing a full suite of value added tools. BioStorage Technologies integrates its ISISS® sample management system through portable laptop workstations; and brings Wi-Fi enabled scanners and barcode readers with encryption technology to create a virtual BioStorage Technologies biorepository at any client's location. 

"We understand our clients' desire to have their sample assets stored onsite to help facilitate research efficiencies and help expedite the discovery of new therapies," said Catherine Michael, Senior Director of Comprehensive Solutions, BioStorage Technologies.  "The consultative nature of our comprehensive solutions enables each of our clients to achieve specific value drivers, such as reduced cost, mitigation of space constraints and improved sample visibility and optimization," said Michael.  

Sample integrity, expertise, service flexibility and technology are all provided in one complete package with the expansion of on-site solutions.

"Another major advantage of an on-site approach is the seamless nature of integrating the data from these samples with data from legacy or archival samples stored at other testing laboratories and biorepositories around the world into a single, global virtual sample management database," added Michael. 

As a pioneer of Good Storage Practices, the company is committed to ensuring sample integrity throughout the complete sample lifecycle. Utilizing ISISS®, the industry's most advanced virtual sample management and web-based inventory tracking tool, BioStorage provides a complete U.S. FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliant audit trail annotated on every sample.
