Eurofins Global Central Laboratory puts a full global logistics system in place to transport samples, which is supported by a customized sample track-and-trace system. It assures the quality and monitors the conditions of the samples and allows direct tracing of samples by our customers.
Accompanying documents received with the samples will be verified and information from the documents will be recorded into the global LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System). The samples will also be labeled with unique barcodes and scanned to a known location. Through synchronization of the information in the LIMS and the barcodes, the samples will remained traceable within the entire laboratory system. The transfer of samples from one storage location to another will also be tracked through the same LIMS system.
