Sample transportation

The critical gap in the chain of custody

It is globally acknowledged that transport conditions may affect sample integrity and usability, especially when samples are collected from many different centers, which considerably increases the logistic challenges. Tracking tubes is therefore critical for process transparency and control. This is the focus of quality and regulatory requirements, which are becoming more demanding in terms of chain-of-custody certification.

Moreover, real-time tracking of transportation can deliver predictive data to the Lab (anticipate delivery time and work volumes), thus enabling it to proactively organize its workflow.
