CloudLIMS is back from the ISBER 2019 Regional Meeting & Exhibits held at the Renaissance Minneapolis Hotel, Minneapolis, United States. More than 300 attendees participated in the event. We presented a poster titled “Enabling Biobanks Achieve ISO 20387 Compliance Using a Cloud-based LIMS” at the event. ISO 20387:2018 standard promotes confidence in biobanking. The accreditation enables biobanks to showcase their competence in providing quality biological materials for research and development. The poster illustrates the various requirements of ISO 20387 including general, process, resource, and quality management system requirements, the significance of achieving ISO 20387 accreditation for biobanks, and the role of a biobanking LIMS in helping biobanks achieve the accreditation. You can download the poster from our resources section.
This year, the theme of the ISBER Regional Meeting & Exhibits was “Times They Are a Changin’: Biobanks for the Future”. The event started with a pre-conference workshop, Biobanking 101, to give participants insights on the development of consents, cold chain management, and harmonization of repository practices. The event focused on digital biobanking, the evolving composition of biobanks, and the role of biobanks in research. The three-day program featured roundtable discussions, eight symposia sessions, two contributed paper sessions, four educational workshops, several poster presentations, talks by renowned industry experts, besides exhibitions by a number of vendors. The delegates had the opportunity to interact with each other, share knowledge, and learn about innovations and new techniques in the field of biobanking.
If you missed the chance to meet us in person, you can schedule an online meeting with us. Our team is happy to discuss your biorepository data management and regulatory challenges and demonstrate how CloudLIMS can help overcome the challenges and enhance the efficiency of your biorepository.
We are exhibiting at the ISBER 2020 Annual Meeting & Exhibits to be held in Anaheim, United States, from April 14-18, 2020.
The poster titled “Empowering Biobanks to Comply with the EU GDPR for Personal Data Protection using a Cloud-based LIMS” is available for download. We presented it at the Europe Biobank Week 2019.
