Proper data management is the second half of a successful biobank. Without accurate and searchable data, assets in a biobank are virtually useless.

RURO’s FreezerPro® software is a class-leading frozen sample management solution, indispensable to any modern scientific or pharmaceutical laboratory. FreezerPro® is an intuitive, fast, reliable and secure, web-based application that has a user-friendly interface. Users know precisely where a sample is located even before opening the freezer door! Popular features include automatic alerts for low number of sample aliquots, sample expiration date, sample volume, and freeze-thaw count, along with powerful reporting tools.

RURO’s LIMIFINTY® software is a robust, flexible, and customizable Master Data and Process Management solution. LIMIFINTY® improves inventory management, automates workflows, eases data transfer with integrated machines and systems, facilitates communication with customers and collaborators, and increases the transparency of overall laboratory management. It is 100% workflow-based and includes flexible dashboards, configurable reports, and other scalable functionality leading to smoother user adoption and limitless flexibility to ensure the system remains viable for a laboratory, or an entire organization, into the future. The optional Tissue Management Module automatically tracks the complex, hierarchical relationships between donors, tissues, and derivatives; and graphically displays Tissue Microarray Blocks for easy design and data entry; among other tissue-specific tools.

RURO’s ezColony® software aids in efficient transgenic animal and facility management. ezColony® includes easy to use tools for managing transgenic animal colonies, including planning and tracking functions necessary to derive new lines, maintain existing lines, and archive lines for future data use. The software is secure and web-based to allow easy, real-time data access to authorized personnel only. It includes many communication and notification tools. A powerful search engine aids in real-time monitoring of colony status, history, genotype, and other data fields. A comprehensive audit trail automatically records changes for review or reporting.

ISENET Galileo Tissue Microarray platform is a reliable and flexible TMA family of instruments with an open architecture which allows the possibility to use different size paraffin blocks (standard, macro and 120x80 mega paraffin blocks) and 96 well plate format with the pick and dispense function for DNA/RNA extractons. The Galileo Platform thanks to the interface with the RURO LIMS and the capability to interface with the major commercial scanners (Aperio, Hamamatsu, Huron, TissueGnostrics, etc.) guarantees maximum traceability between the Donor and its TMA spot.

The partnership between RURO and ISENET is a natural fit, combining ISENET’s biobank and tissue microarray expertise with RURO’s experience laboratory-focused software engineering capabilities. Bringing together these two complimentary skill sets has enormous benefits for customers of both companies.

“In order to function effectively and safely, a biobank must be able to physically maintain its assets under optimal conditions for preservation,” said Tom Dolan, Chief Operating Officer for RURO, Inc. “But, proper data management is the second half of a successful biobank. Without accurate and searchable data, assets in a biobank are virtually useless. The partnership between RURO and ISENET brings together the expertise necessary to achieve both goals.”
