Summary:

Managing multi-site specimen collections can be challenging without the right biospecimen LIMS to streamline the process. In this webinar, Audrey Albertini (biobank coordinator) and Anna Mantsoki (biobank data scientist) from the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND, Geneva), will talk about how they prepare for and manage multi-center clinical studies using OpenSpecimen.

FIND is a global non-profit organization driving innovation in the development and delivery of diagnostics to combat major diseases affecting the world’s poorest populations. FIND’s Biobank has been using OpenSpecimen since 2017 to manage collections across multiple countries in Africa and Asia, and store specimens in a central biorepository in the USA.
