Enregistrement et stockage

All the specimens reaching the CNRGH are recorded in the Bank Laboratory LIMS. The traceability of the specimens is ensured by a bar code system.

All the specimens received are completely anonymous and stored in standard tubes. They are identified by a unique bar-code ensuring sample follow-up throughout its processing at the CNRGH, at the Bank Laboratory during the production stages and lastly during the quality control and analysis stages.

Storage of blood samples
​at -80°C

The Bank Laboratory is endowed with a very high storage capacity appropriate to the volume and variety of the specimens processed (2 cold stores at -20°C, numerous freezers at -80°C, liquid nitrogen tanks). Once the samples have been recorded, they are stored under optimum conditions in order to ensure their integrity and security:  temperatures appropriate to the specimen types, storage system with an alarm system and alarm relaying to security during non-working hours, 24/7 duty system ensuring rapid intervention and placement of sensitive samples in a secure facility in the event of a freezer failure.​​
