BioStorage Technologies Expands its Service Offering to Include Advanced Bioprocessing Solutions

INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BioStorage Technologies, a global provider of comprehensive sample management solutions for the bioscience industry, including storage, cold chain logistics and virtual sample intelligence, announced today that the company has developed a strategic and innovative Bioprocessing Solutions alliance with RUCDR Infinite Biologics.  The alliance provides the bioscience industry with an integrated, state-of-the-art scientific approach and technology infrastructure for the delivery of advanced sample bioprocessing and biobanking solutions. 

Good storage practices are critical to maintaining the integrity of biological samples; therefore an integrated sample lifecycle strategy connecting sample collection, transportation and storage to the bioprocessing of samples allows for maximum optimization of preserved biological samples. With this in mind, this new alliance extends BioStorage Technologies capabilities by incorporating a broad spectrum of advanced bioprocessing techniques, such as nucleic acid sample preparation services, genetic and genomic services, cell services, bioinformatics and analysis solutions, with its industry-leading sample storage processes.

"As a global leader in comprehensive sample management solutions, it was a natural progression to also offer our clients advanced bioprocessing solutions. With the addition of these services, we can extend stored samples into renewable biological resources and optimize the value of these assets for future research by reducing study costs, minimizing risk of sample loss and speeding new drugs to market faster," said Gregory Swanberg, CEO, BioStorage Technologies. "The scientific and technical bioprocessing solutions expertise of RUCDR Infinite Biologics combined with our leadership in sample management best practices allow us to deliver a complete and integrated sample lifecycle solutions approach and expands our capabilities to support projects of any size or complexity anywhere in the world."

BioStorage Technologies manages the complete life-cycle of samples from the planning, collection, transportation, and protection to the retrieval and disposal of these research assets. Servicing pharmaceutical and biotech research companies, donor organizations and tissue banks, as well as research and academic organizations around the world, the relationship with RUCDR expands and adds to this sample management lifecycle a valuable renewable resourcing stage to the lifecycle management of samples.  The Bioprocessing Solutions Alliance provides the bioscience industry with a single, integrated and global solution for the bioprocessing and storage of biological samples and is supported by each company's ability to provide scientific experts, best-in-class quality control processes and advanced information technology systems.
