Researchers require innovative solutions to ensure that their biobanking projects are a success. From initial sample collection to storage and use in downstream applications, precious biospecimens should be handled with care. Precision medicine research in particular relies on sophisticated biobanking systems to maintain sample integrity and streamline workflows. In this webinar, brought to you by

Introduction: Informed consent for research biospecimen donations is traditionally obtained through a face-to-face interaction with research staff and by signing an Institutional Review Board (IRB)-approved printed form. Electronic signatures (eSign) are routinely used in the electronic medical record (EMR) for the consenting of clinical services after patients review printed documentation. Our
