DEDICATED SAMPLE MANAGEMENT

Each Eurofins Central Laboratory facility has its own dedicated sample management department in place. Upon receipt of the samples that have been collected at the investigator sites, the completeness and identification of said samples, along with the accompanying request form, are verified.

After unpacking the samples, all accompanying documentation is then checked and entered into the global LIMS. The request form information is carefully entered into the LIMS by two independent individuals. Following this double data entry process, the LIMS itself deploys routine consistency checks. The samples are then labeled with unique barcodes which are used for tracking purposes throughout the entire laboratory facility.

Our laboratory instruments read the barcode and determine which tests need to be performed and in which order. This will allow the most optimal use of the sample provided to us. After analysis, the instruments electronically transfer the test results to the LIMS.
