90 Day/$90k Sapphire BioBanking

LabVantage has introduced a 90 day/$90k guaranteed implementation for its Sapphire BioBanking Solution.

The full-featured, out-of-the-box software is now guaranteed to be delivered by LabVantage within a fixed duration of 90 days and at a fixed cost of $90,000.

LabVantage's guaranteed implementation serves the needs of both large and small organizations. For small-to-medium sized biobanking projects, it addresses the comprehensive requirements for biospecimen management in a timely and standardised fashion. At the same time, for complex biobanking projects, it is a robust foundation for enterprises to demonstrate quick success from rapid deployment.

A part of the Sapphire Laboratory Information Management Suite (LIMS), a zero-footprint configurable off-the-shelf (COTS) system, the BioBanking module provides a centralised solution for the storage, data capture, retrieval, and processing of biospecimens throughout an organisation. It addresses the need for study management, package tracking and handling, sample management, storage and inventory management, and analytics and reporting.
