Purpose

ConduITS has implemented the LabVantage Biorepository Management System for the MSHS research community to reduce the barriers to entry for biospecimen collection. ConduITS provides the software licenses and maintains the servers, databases, and the application. ConduITS also provides consultation and basic training on project setup, master data entry, and label generation.

This biorepository management system can be used to support ad hoc sample collection as well as defined protocol-driven sample collection. Donor registration, consent, and common sample annotation can be captured in a single system to ease the future sample search and report. This system also uses role-based access control to protect donor’s privacy. This system tracks the sample processing, storage condition, and the chain of custody to provide a complete picture about a sample’s lineage.
