The Johns Hopkins Biological Repository – Secure samples, secure data

Rows of Freezers located in Johns Hopkins Biological RepositoryThe development of the Johns Hopkins Biological Repository (Director: Dr. Homayoon Farzadegan) is a remarkable story. More than one million frozen research samples were moved out of labs and hallways and into a state-of-the-art off-site biobank facility.

Stacey Cayetano and Brett Purinton shared the development of the Johns Hopkins repository and their use of Freezerworks Unlimited at our 2013 Users Meeting. Freezerworks Unlimited was configured by Stacey and Brett and the JHBR staff into a full featured (and affordable) Biorepository Information Management System, managing everything from testing and results to storage and shipping.
