The Leading Provider of Biobanking Services
Sample integrity is essential to the success of every biobanking project. So is the ability to easily share information designed to accelerate lifesaving discoveries. Various types of unwanted pre-analytical variables can be introduced at numerous points in the life of a sample, beginning at the time it is collected, through transport, receiving, laboratory processing, during storage and subsequent retrieval for analysis. Why take a risk? With experience maintaining the integrity of millions of samples in our global network of biorepositories, we are the experts in transporting, storing, and handling specialized biological samples and material.
Quality is at the center of everything that we do, from validating our equipment, software and processes, to transporting samples to training our employees. Fisher Clinical Services maintains a global, comprehensive, and integrated Quality Management System based on regulatory requirements and industry best practices. Our Quality System follows current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) guidelines and complies with governing bodies.
A sample is only as good as the data appended to it. Our inventory management system allows our customers to have access to their data and inventory online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is validated, 21 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 11 compliant, and is easily configurable to client specifications.
Maintaining the appropriate storage temperature of a clinical specimen or drug vial is critical for downstream use. Our cold storage units are monitored 24 hours a day for both temperature and humidity. Our units have redundant compressors to prevent temperature excursions if the primary compressor should fail. The monitoring system also notifies personnel or on-call staff, day or night, should the temperature of any unit deviate from its acceptable range.
We are committed to protecting your materials. Our comprehensive security system includes intrusion detection alerts and our facilities, including freezers and other cold storage units, are gated with access-only card readers. In the event of a power outage, every facility is equipped with both uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and one or more back-up generators.
