Find your Business-Critical Answer to your Biospecimen Insource-or-Outsource Question

One of the greatest challenges facing biospecimen managers is that every single step in their workflow – from collection protocols and methods, to sample transportation and storage, to systems maintenance – could be potentially outsourced to service providers. To ensure long-term viability of both your biospecimens and your business model, you must analyze every step of the biosample handling cycle and determine if it is best handled by your own team or by a vendor – and once you’ve identified the functions that must be outsourced, you then have to establish excellence in vendor choice and oversight.

The 5th Annual Biorepositories Conference will offer in-depth knowledge about properly assigning every operational step to those most qualified for executing them. Don’t miss these exclusive case studies:
  • - Strategic Considerations for Establishing and Managing an Organizational Biobank presented by Paul Downey, COO, UK Biobank
  • - Establish a Biobanking Operational Plan that Affordably Accounts for Multiple Data Sources, End Users, and Service Providers presented by Wendy Wells, Chair, Pathology Department, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Cathy Weaver, Global Head of Sample Management, BioStorage Technologies
  • - WORKSHOP: The Future of Comprehensive Sample Management: Innovative Solutions to Optimize the Value of Research Samples with speakers including Debra Reinhard, Director, Clinical Sample Strategy & Operations, Bristol Myers Squibb, Amelia Wall Warner, Head of Clinical Pharmacogenomics, Merck & Company, Erik Billings, Director of Healthcare Product Management, Iron Mountain and Steve Sweeney, Head of Clinical Technologies, Infinity Pharmaceuticals
