Ziath package improves biobank workflow and simplifies sample tracking

Ziath's Mohawk, Mirage and Samples sample management software, with fully traceable Data Matrix 2D bar coded tubes, are designed to improve workflow and simplify sample tracking

Ziath Biobank (BB) package

Ziath has released a new package, designed for smaller biobanks and biorepositories, that contains everything needed to start-up and maintain enhanced sample integrity, tracking and audit trail.

The ‘BB package’ combines top-quality 2D coded sample storage tubes, a high performance 2D barcoded tube scanner and a semi-automated tube selector that makes picking individual tubes easier.

Ziath sample management software is also included in the package. It allows users to organise their sample inventory and simplifies the process of setting-up a biobank or biorepository. This software can generate "picking lists" of tubes that are required for further work, which can be sent directly to the Mohawk tube selector.

The Mirage 2D barcoded tube scanner allows users to quickly identify all the tubes in a rack and the Mohawk software will flag any that should be picked. Once all the required tubes are assembled in a "daughter" rack, Mohawk and Mirage can be used together to verify them. Their new locations can then be updated in the sample management software. The sample management software even allows users to create external locations to track exactly where they are.

Ziath offers a discount voucher off top-quality cryotubes, racks and SBS sample tubes from major European suppliers as part of this bundle.
