BOSTON - Nov. 7, 2016 - PRLog -- This 52 page market report summarizes the results of  industry-wide global web-based benchmarking survey on the emerging requirements for identification tracking and maintaining the quality of stored samples.

The survey covered both biospecimens and drug compounds stored under frozen and/or ambient conditions and was initiated on behalf of a client who plans to introduce a new technology that provides both sample identification and quality tracking.

The objectives of the survey were to understand current methods used for identification (ID) tracking of stored samples, the importance of sample quality and of approaches used to maintain quality, and to establish potential interest in a new sample ID and quality tracking technology.

The survey looked at the following aspects of sample storage quality & ID tracking trends as practiced today (2016) and in a few cases as predicted for the future (2018):

• groupings where involvement with stored samples predominantly reside; main applications or intended uses of stored samples; how samples are tracked today;
• how the quality of stored samples is verified; level of satisfaction with a list of quality and chain of custody tracking technologies; types of consumables used for sample storage;
• types of materials used for sample/specimen containers;
• importance of environmental sustainability factors when purchasing storage consumables;
• number of samples stored in respondent's sample inventory;
• main obstacles that prevent maximizing the use of stored samples today;
• relative rating of obstacles that may limit the use of stored samples;
• average cost to replace a poor quality sample;
• what is most damaging to the expected use of stored samples;
• how many times samples are exposed to a significant temperature change per day;
• current use protocol for stored samples;
• value placed on a continuous audit trail of sample ID and the temperature exposure;
• whether stored samples are subject to standardized SOPs prior to storage;
• aspects of sample deposition and the storage process that are most critical to success;
• what storage temperatures apply to respondent's stored samples;
• features most wanted in any new sample ID and quality tracking technology;
• perceived advantages of using a new ID and quality tracking system;
• acceptable price for a sample ID and quality tracking device;
• respondents who would consider using a new ID and quality tracking system fitted to their consumables;
• number of tagged standard 2mL cryovials that might be purchased per year;
• likelihood of investing in any new sample storage consumable technologies that improve and or extend the life of stored samples;
• main reasons for not using an ID and quality tracking system;
• sample storage consumables budget;
• preferred vendors of the majority of sample storage consumables purchased;
• possible added value application opportunities for a new ID and quality tracking system;
• feedback on the usefulness of a new ID and quality tracking system;
• any unmet needs in the current products that support sample storage ID tracking and quality validation;
• and respondents who are willing to be contacted to discuss their sample storage tracking and quality requirements further.
