ClinAxys® for Sample Tracking and Freezer Management

ClinAxys® provides comprehensive, tube-centric, functionality sample storage and freezer management which allows laboratory staff to determine which frozen samples are due for analysis and where they are located.

The benefits of the system include:

Comprehensiveness and Ease of Use

  • Extensive functionality
  • User-definable freezer parameters (racks, shelves, box dimensions)
  • Study-specific areas within a freezer allows automatic allocation of a tube to the next free location in the defined area
  • If the Logistics, Kits and Inventory module is installed, the tube labels created during kit preparation directly link the frozen tubes to freezer management as they arrive in the laboratory
  • Freezers can be grouped at different global locations with users being restricted to their local facilities
  • Flexible processing of multiple shipments of samples from the same investigator site
  • If certain tubes defined in the protocol are not received from the site, the operator registering the sample can indicate:
    • that the tube will be arriving later (putting on hold the tests associated with that tube) or
    • that the tube will never be received (the tests are set to ‘complete’)
  • Facilities for recording additional information of any tube received late (e.g. Airway Bill Number, receipt date & time)
  • User can see which samples and tubes have been booked into ClinAxys®, which samples have actually been received and allocated to a freezer or which are still at the investigator site
  • Workload forecasting to determine how many tubes are waiting to be analysed for a particular set of tests
  • Batch withdrawal of a set of tubes for analysis, thaw them, analyse them and return them to the freezer - all fully audited
  • Maximum number of freeze/thaw cycles checked at each withdrawal
  • Recording of the removal of tubes from the freezer for disposal.
We made a substantial contribution to the development of this module via the ClinAxys® User Group and the Special Interest Group, and could not be happier with it. It is truly comprehensive and streamlines highly complex processes, giving us complete trust in our sample tracking and freezer management.

Faster workflows, reduced costs, & increased profitability with ClinAxys®.
