  • Tuesday, May 11, 2021

LabConnect continues to lead the industry in providing innovative strategies and solutions to address the ever-growing complexities of clinical trial sample and product management. The complexities of sample collection and logistics in advanced therapy studies inherently creates chain of custody challenges in protecting the integrity of a trials’ high value samples, source materials and therapeutic products. The focus of this presentation will be on managing the life cycle of these components, including the administration of an autologous product to a patient. We will look at the challenges in maintaining chain of custody and solutions that can be implemented to ensure the integrity and quality of the product back to the patient.

What you will learn in this presentation:

  • The strategies and benefits for creation and execution of a comprehensive end to end sample management plan
  • The significance of early collaboration with your central lab, vendors, and couriers in study planning and protocol development
  • Logistical solutions available for the management and environmental maintenance of the source material and products
  • A good understanding of the numerous hand offs between multiple people, systems, and vendors for advanced therapies involving the creation of autologous products
  • The impact of dedicated logistics expertise and courier integration for mitigating in transit delays
  • Understanding the different types of sample tracking service options available in the industry today and which are the most beneficial for advanced therapy trials
  • Solutions for real-time visibility into the tracking of milestones and handoffs involving all stakeholders providing better control to mitigate risks and ensure a successful journey for the source material and product
  • The benefits of an end-to-end sample management solution that pulls together the ability to see when a sample is to be collected, when it is collected, when it is shipped, and when and where it is received, with integrated tracking numbers and real-time data cleaning
