Significance of Quality Assurance in Clinical Research Data Management

Clinical Research Data Management Software

July 17, 2018

Rapid technological advancements in clinical research raise the need to employ an effective Clinical Data Management (CDM) process to ensure the production of high-quality clinical data for monitoring drug development. Clinical research is expensive in nature. It is realized that even a very small calibration bias in clinical research can have severe repercussions resulting in misdiagnosis, wrong treatment, and escalated costs associated with retesting. The avoidable retest cost has also been estimated to be in millions in the US alone. Thus, it is required that the clinical data presented is accurate, reliable, valid and reflects a true picture of the clinical research [...]

Secure Client Portal for Seamless Communication with Your Clients

Secure Client Portal for Seamless Communication

June 13, 2018

One of the biggest challenges for laboratories is to find a way of directly and easily communicating with their customers through a secure digital channel. An easy communication channel often leads to a hassle-free experience for the laboratory and a happy customer for them. For better laboratory operations and efficient customer service, several LIMS vendors introduced a client portal. A client portal is a means of information sharing between a laboratory and its clientele via an easily accessible web browser [...]

Importance of Well-annotated Biospecimen for Clinical Research

Importance of Well-annotated Biospecimen for Clinical Research

March 07, 2018

Biobanking plays a critical role in facilitating clinical research. It provides better opportunities for advancing community health by the collection and preservation of biospecimens such as blood, plasma, tissues, and DNA. These biospecimens are then made available for use in research to discover disease biomarkers that can be used to diagnose various phases of diseases, oversee severity of diseases and predicting drug responses. Therefore, availability of high-quality and well-annotated biospecimens is imperative. However, a major roadblock in research is the limited availability of biospecimens and associated clinical data including medical, genealogical, and lifestyle information [...]
