Quality starts at the point of sample collection. At Ardena we design and assemble sample collection kits. Detailed instructions are provided in a laboratory manual customised for each clinical trial. All investigator sites are supplied with assay specific specimen collection and transportation kits compliant with IATA packing instructions. These kits are accompanied by requisition forms, pre-printed airway bills and instructions describing the logistic procedure.
Logistics management is critical to ensure that samples are analyzed in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Ardena has a dedicated sample management department in place to ensure such operations are carried out effectively, for even the most complex clinical trial.
Upon receipt, the identification and completeness of each sample and the accompanying requisition forms are verified. After unpacking the samples, the documentation is checked and entered into a dedicated Clinical Trial Management System.
We also provide advanced, compliant sample storage capacity. We offer temperature controlled biosample storage at 2-8°C, -20°C and -80°C.
