Enhanced Capabilities for Matrix Gemini Biobank Management
21 Aug 2019
The Matrix Gemini Biobank Management System from Autoscribe Informatics now offers greater versatility with the inclusion of environmental monitoring and equipment calibration and maintenance monitoring capabilities.
The system is designed to provide a highly configurable environment for all aspects of biobank, biorepository, and clinical trials management. It is suitable for managing bio-samples (such as blood, tissue, DNA, etc.) to assist with compliance to regulatory requirements.
With Biobanks typically storing samples in multiple freezers and refrigerators it is extremely important to ensure that equipment is not only operating within specification, but also that it is properly maintained and serviced according to the manufacturers’ recommendations. The Instrument Calibration and Maintenance System (ICMS) component of Matrix Gemini enables the status of each item of equipment to be tracked automatically including whether or not it is available, and events such as the maintenance period being exceeded, etc. An automatic change of status occurs when calibration or maintenance is overdue and when it is performed. Automatic reminders of scheduled events are provided.
The addition of environmental monitoring module allows for rooms and storage vessels to be monitored for temperature and other environmental conditions such as sterility and contamination. It can also be used for temperature mapping within freezers and refrigerators including the identification of hot or cold spots, which can be displayed graphically.
Complete location recording from room to freezer, shelf, container and container position is easy via Matrix Gemini’s container view, which provides a graphical representation of the different container types. A full audit trail of all changes is provided, together with storage location auditing and reconciliation with chain of custody reporting. Samples can be tracked when they are removed for research and are closely monitored to ensure that they are disposed of correctly.
Using the built-in graphical configuration tools, Matrix Gemini Biobanking solutions can be adapted quickly and easily to represent exact user requirements in terms of workflows, screen designs, menu designs, terminology, report designs and much more. Find out more by clicking here
