Sample tracking is an aspect of Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) that has received a great deal of attention since the introduction of computer based Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS). In life science institutions, especially those which use human material, it is vitally important to be able to name and trace biological materials. The successful implementation of a suitable tracking system not only ensures that all materials are easily found and traced, but can help guarantee the regulatory compliance and the value of a laboratory and its results
This white paper examines the importance of tracking biological materials and samples as they move through laboratory processes, and looks at the possible consequences of undertaking this kind of procedure incorrectly. It discusses the use of electronic systems to ensure each and every sample is accounted for, and some of the major issues to consider when selecting software for your laboratory.
