Working with samples
Freezer Web Access can track all of your research, development and process scale-up data in a single data storage platform, provides an organized and time effective means of keeping inventory and tracking samples on a large scale, integrates sample storage and data storage in one easy-to-use format, minimizes confusion and increases overall efficiency. With a multifaceted approach, the program allows for inventory to be maintained based on specific user requirements.
Freezer Web Access is a user friendly program designed to assist researchers with establishing an efficient system for keeping track of storied frozen biological samples. Freezer Web Access is built in a way that requires no IT-staff assistance for set up or use.
With Freezer Web Access, storage of samples is simple and systematic. Virtual containers are created to match the configuration and dimensions of physical storage containers. Containers/freezers may be easily configured using a Quick Setup feature, new containers may be added whenever there is a need to expand. Samples are entered into the program according to their physical arrangement in freezers. A Container Layout feature provides a visual representation of each container for ease of identifying occupied vs vacant spaces. Entries may be made in a sample by sample manner or in batches (in cases where there are numerous identical samples). Detailed information pertaining to a sample is entered at the time of initial entry and may be easily edited when necessary. Freezer Web Access provides a platform whereby documents can be virtually attached to samples both individually and in batches.
Did you know?
Freezer Web Access meets GLP and FDA Guidelines, including 21 CFR part 11 requirements: meets current regulatory and audit requirements by tracking every data change and requiring appropriate authentication to undertake any activity within the system.
Freezer Web Access enables users to track a sample from its point of origin to its final destination. Samples may be moved within the program corresponding with a physical transfer within or between containers. A removal log documents the destination of a sample, the reason for its shipment/removal outside of the system, and the personnel responsible for the removal. Freezer Web Access tracks the lineage of samples, particularly frozen cells. Daughter cells can be linked to parent cells and such relationships are clearly represented on a tree. Any movement of samples within the system is accompanied by the transfer of information as detailed descriptions and uploaded files remain attached to the samples as they are moved from one location to another. A bar-coding system also makes it easy to monitor the movement of samples. Information can be exported and further distributed as the need arises.
A user can record and manage collection kit information - volume to be used in the kit, vial volume and measurement units, threshold value, expiration date. Freezer Web Access makes it easy to track vial volume and expiration date, and check if there is enough material in the kit.
The Cell Culture module is a highly specialized protocol-driven system designed to support development of the cell lines. Cell Culture manages activities related to the growth and maintenance of cell lines, provides stable cell lines development and incorporates laboratory methods facilitating faster and more accurate inventory lifecycle management - from the procurement of cell lines and request processing to tracking of tubes and other items in the laboratories.
Cell Culture provides easy to follow, step-by-step protocols, includes tips as well as the ability to take notes. It is of interest to researchers, technicians and process engineers using cell culture within the biotechnology, biomedicine and pharmaceutical industries.
The Freezer Web Access system has flexible and easy to use reporting features that help you be in control at all times. With an intuitive interface designed with ease of use in mind, reporting features allow you to keep a close eye on valuable samples and specimens, and are able to leverage information to make critical decisions.
Explore the data graphically based on data properties, rather than through complex queries.
Replace static reports with online analytical processing.
Dig deeper into the underlying details or into related data.
Move on to user-driven, visual analysis.
Reduce data through filters.
At ATGC Labs, we are able to incorporate new features and customize statistical reports based on customer requirements, and integrate Freezer Web Access with existing corporate data.
If you have a new requirement or need upkeep services for a software system, our team of bioinformatics scientists and computer professionals will be able to assist you. We are available for your research and commercial bioinformatics needs.
