The importance of sample tracking and quality assessment

Sample identity and the integrity of genomic data are critical for execution of superior research. Particularly with complex multiphase studies, aliquots from a single specimen may be shared among researchers within a laboratory or with external collaborators and service providers. From high-throughput genomics centers to biorepositories or centralized cell line banks, ensuring accurate sample tracking and quality from acquisition through data reporting is a universally recognized priority.

Implementing a standard genotyping workflow to confirm the identity and quality of each sample before analysis represents an ideal solution to maximize the integrity of study results.
