AKESOgen is an integrated genomics, genetics and biobanking company that services the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, clinical, academic, and government sectors for clinical trials, diagnostic clinical testing and research. Based in the greater Atlanta, Georgia area, the initial focus of the company is oncology and personalized medicine.

AKESOgen Research Services and Clinical/Regulatory Services provide high-throughput biomarker profiling, cytogenomic arrays, sequencing (NGS), genotyping and epigenomic analysis utilizing different types of markers (e.g. DNA, mRNA, miRNA, and methylation) to CLIA/CAP standards.

The company delivers data at the apex of quality, enhances client productivity and enables them to meet important deadlines by offering the best in customer service and a collaborative, consultative relationship.

The Monitoring Need

AKESOgen uses hybridization ovens for the amplification of genotype arrays with a very narrow variance of only 1 degree.  Over time, the customers that partnered with AKESOgen, increasingly required that their service agreements reflect a commitment to compliance with FDA  21 CFR Part 11 regulation.  They also wanted continual monitoring of their samples.

AKESOgen was manually monitoring their temperature controlled inventory, with no monitoring outside of their regular business hours.  Consequently, a need arose for an automated monitoring system to ensure a greater level of protection for their customers.

The Tutela Solution

In their search for an automated monitoring system, AKESOgen reviewed 5 systems on the market, including the Genesis 3 System from Tutela.  They began their assessment keeping in mind their specific requirements that needed to be met, one being the convenience of wireless connectivity that prevented the need to run cabling.

AKESOgen learned about Tutela at the International Biobanking Summit (ISBER) where they discussed the Tutela system with their industry peers.   They were impressed with the system features and reached out after the summit to obtain more specific information on how the system could be utilized in their laboratory environment.

The Tutela Genesis 3 System was ultimately selected for a number of factors that benefited day-to-day operations at AKESOgen:

·         A price point that met budget constraints.

·         A live call bureau for direct contact 24/7 in the event of an alarm.

·         Sensors that can be installed with a dual purpose, door alarming and temperature monitoring.

·         DQ, IQ, OQ documentation that is readily available through the customer interface any time it needs to be recalled for audit purposes.
