With comprehensive and fully integrated sample and inventory management, Genedata Biologics acts as a central repository for inventory and warehousing information, such as sample type and content, amount, concentration, physical location, labware, storage conditions, and distribution status. Aliquot groups can be created for any sample type, such as cell lines, protein expression batches, protein purification batches, and other biological materials. Storage information, including freezer and storage conditions, are recorded for each sample. Both barcoded and non-barcoded processes can be managed. The platform tracks aliquot distribution information for all sample transactions and automatically updates inventory information in real-time (e.g., remaining aliquot numbers and sample volumes). Samples can be reserved for special purposes, set aside for future distribution and use, or disposed of. All metadata is directly integrated into Genedata Biologics, giving one-button access to all information on any sample, such as for a purified antibody sample and its full history including used plasmids and cell lines for expression, purification protocol, and all analytics and sample QC information (e.g., purity, endotoxin, N/C terminus checks). Query tools provide a simple way to find relevant inventory information and the physical location of a particular sample, such as by sample identifier or by metadata information.
