Clinical Sample Management

Clinical Trial Solutions serving Central Laboratories, Clinical Research Sites, Sponsors, and Contract Research Organizations

Clinical sample management requires strict record keeping and reporting to meet compliance requirements, full chain of custody, well-established operational flows, oversight, and reporting for every stage of the sample’s shipping, handling, and storage onsite and offsite. Cryoport Systems’ BioServices solutions focus on high-quality, integrated services encompassing clinical sample management activities including patient sample processing, testing, storage, and logistics as well as sample kit production, clinical documentation writing, and real-time monitoring. In addition to storing your materials in ultra-secure, GMP, GCP, and GCLP standard infrastructures, we provide the centralized administration of your logistics flow. Our clinical sample management capabilities integrate with our broader platform of supply chain services to create complete support throughout all phases of clinical trials. We assist in managing service providers and all stakeholders (trial centers, carriers, laboratories, and monitoring CROs) to ensure that their activities are fully aligned with the demands of your clinical trials.
