Join QuartzBio at the SCOPE 2022 Summit for the “Clinical Biomarkers Operations and Innovation” track on February 8-9.
PRESENTATION: “30 Days to an Annotated Virtual Repository — Without Changing DTAs”

Clinical and biomarker operations teams can create ongoing visibility into sample collection, processing and testing by linking biospecimen metadata, informed consent, and biomarker data across multiple LIMS and inventories.
Mike Waters will share how teams are using technology to access a single source of truth for sample inventory management.


From IHC to Immune Profiling: Managing Data Breadth and Depth to Inform On-Study Decisions

Trends & Insights|

January 10, 2022 — With immuno-oncology assets progressing in the clinic, a growing biotechnology company we work with faces an increasingly common challenge:

Their trials are generating large datasets across a wide range of assay modalities (Figure 1), but the data remains siloed.

In addition to clinical data coming from the clinical research organization (CRO), the velocity of data coming from an assay services laboratory continuously delivering biomarker data from flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry, and genomics platforms quickly becomes overwhelming. Still another, separate data stream comes from a specialty laboratory delivering T-cell receptor (TCR) profiling data.


Integrating Sources of Sample Information Across Multiple Clinical Trials

Trends & Insights|

November 19, 2021 — As we discussed in our recent webinar, QuartzBio’s virtual Sample Inventory Management (vSIM) solution empowers clinical operations and translational research teams by integrating multiple sources of sample information, both within and across studies.

The platform enables users to interact with harmonized data from multiple sources, gain critical insights via KPI and data issue reporting, and manage queries resulting from those data inconsistencies.

Title: Advancing Clinical Sample Management with a Virtual Sample Repository

Duration: 30 minutes

You’ll see how a virtual repository delivered via QuartzBio’s translational hub provides visibility into clinical sample status:

  • Sample visibility across studies, central labs, third party vendors, biorepositories, and disparate source systems
  • KPI dashboards that report sample status including collection, processing, testing, consent, expiration – while highlighting collection gaps and discrepancies.
  • Dynamic visualizations to quickly review expected vs actual sample status by patient, time point, and assay type


Monitoring Consent Status With a Novel Virtual Repository

Trends & Insights|

October 8, 2021 — Sponsors are challenged to keep track of complex sample inventories, both on study and for samples collected as part of completed studies that might be later mined for translational research needs. We frequently hear that teams spend significant time manually cross-referencing spreadsheets of inventory data, to answer questions such as:

  • “How many whole blood samples with a particular mutation do we have across all phase I studies?”
  • “Can we report sample expiration status across all of our contracted biorepositories?”
  • “When we identify a sample of interest, how can we confirm consent status?”
