Sample Management

Sonic Clinical Trials understands the importance of sample management, archiving, storage and shipping of samples for their clients. Our secure storage facilities have continuous alarm and temperature monitoring, including constant generator backup in the event of power disruption.

Our sophisticated and powerful sample management system ensures complete chain-of-custody of the sample, from the time of sample receipt, storage and shipment to referral laboratories at any global location chosen by the sponsor.  We have the ability to store samples both for short and long term storage at ambient, refrigerated and frozen temperatures (-20oC,-70oC,-80oC, -150oC). Biological samples often stored include:

  • Serum and plasma
  • PK samples
  • Biopsies, tissue, slides
  • DNA and RNA
  • PBMCs
  • Buffy Coats

A unique tracking barcode number is assigned to all specimens. Our system has the ability to comprehensively track the current storage location and movement history of a sample, including referral laboratory details, airway bill numbers, carrier details and shipping frequency (as defined by the client ). 

Shipments to sponsor-nominated referral labs  are scheduled automatically per client requirements.
