Webinar: Integration of Technology, Process and Quality Control: Protecting Complete Sample Chain of Custody

February 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

"Implementation of biobanking best practices and analytical platform standardization are two important components for any data generation associated with state of the art biobanks that support precision medicine applications. Sample collection, pre analytical variables, controlled environment storage and sample processing can often have a large impact on the quality of biomaterials. This roundtable will describe how to standardize biobanking efforts in a manner commensurate with both academic and industrial partnerships. Data will be presented on the governance of biosample collections, standardization efforts, and quality control harmonization for biosamples as well as global best practices for the regulatory oversight of national and commercial biobank resources. Finally, a review of several international programs will illustrate how collaborative efforts are helping advance integrated biobanking precision medicine across many research and clinical areas."

Astrix Webinar – Designing LabWare Solutions for Maintainability and Scalability

February 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

webinar sponsored by the Astrix Technology Group
Date:  Tuesday, February 26th, 2019
Time:  1:00 PM EDT / 10:00 AM PDT

LabWare LIMS offers a broad range of user-configurable functionality, enabling the system to be readily adapted and optimized to your operational needs as your business changes. While this flexibility offers many benefits, it also presents unique challenges when implementing, maintaining or upgrading the system. Designing your system solutions with scalability and maintainability in mind needs to be a top priority. Companies that do not work to ensure that the configured functionality of their system is scalable and maintainable will mostly likely have to invest significant time and resources to implement and maintain the system down the road when business requirements change.

The Astrix Team has extensive experience with LabWare and can provide the support you need in this area. In this webinar, we’ll discuss tips to ensure that your LabWare LIMS is better suited to adapt to ever changing business needs.

Some topics covered in this webinar include:

  • What does it mean for a system to be scalable and maintainable
  • The importance of naming conventions
  • The importance of user configurable solutions
  • What to consider when Integrating other systems
  • Case study example: Centralized Data Review


Ed Peloquin is the LabWare Delivery Manager at Astrix, and he is responsible for the successful delivery of LabWare solutions for the Professional Services Division.  He has more than 14 years of experience implementing LabWare solutions in the global life sciences, contract lab, and manufacturing industries. He has an extensive track record of driving success and delivering value to his client’s projects.
