SAN DIEGO, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Biomatrica, the leader in room temperature biological sample stabilization, today announces the release of SampleWare 3.1 software system for laboratory inventory, organization and management of biological samples. The latest release now includes an audit trail functionality that tracks user and date stamps to provide a more complete history of any stored sample.
The addition of the audit trail feature offers customers a much needed ability to track all events occurring to any sample stored in their laboratory freezers or storage cabinets. SampleWare allows lab managers to import sample data into the system, copy data from sample files within the system and transfer physical samples along with corresponding data between departments.
"SampleWare 3.1 introduces critical functionality that allows us to better serve the needs of our customers across multiple industries such as biobanking, drug discovery, forensics and biomedical research," said Brian Baumann, Biomatrica's Director of Software. "SampleWare 3.1 provides tools for uploading, tracking and retrieving sample data easily and effectively. The database is easily customized, allowing users to match data to their specific sample types, as well as attach data and image files to corresponding samples."
Biomatrica's product line of biostability reagents - DNAstable®, RNAstable(TM), Clonestable®, and DNAgard(TM) - are bar-coded and seamlessly integrate with SampleWare to facilitate an easy transition to online sample documentation. The SampleWare system is also compatible with RFID (radio frequency identification), making it easy for labs to incorporate RFID technology into their sample management methodology.
SampleWare is available in three editions: Desktop, Network and Basic, depending on the size and scale of the lab. SampleWare Desktop Edition is a single-user version with unlimited storage capacity. SampleWare Network Edition allows for multi-user functionality with the purchase of additional network licenses as needed. SampleWare Basic is a single-user version limited to storage of 5,000 samples. More details about SampleWare can be found at www.biomatrica.com/sampleware.php
About Biomatrica®, Inc.
Biomatrica (www.biomatrica.com) is a San Diego-based biostability company that provides innovative technologies for stabilizing, processing, storing, shipping and tracking biological samples at room temperature. The core technology is designed for use in preserving complex biological samples and assays and is based on the principles of anhydrobiosis ("life without water"), a natural mechanism that allows multicellular organisms to survive extreme environments. Biomatrica's current products stabilize DNA and RNA with no sample degradation, thus labs can reduce their reliance on freezers and drastically reduce shipping costs. Biomatrica products are used in laboratories performing life science research, from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies to academic research and forensics laboratories. Custom services to stabilize additional sample types are also available. Biomatrica also offers SampleWare® software, an easy-to-use, customizable laboratory management database that provides scientists with the means to store and organize their sample data, and directly supports samples stabilized by Biomatrica technology.
