When a person asks for the samples he has given for storage in the bank, the company gives the list that is received as output by entering the ID in the application of the storage system. The sample tracking procedure works out well and companies find the use of software implementation highly efficient in all terms. The aliquots are tested at periodic intervals and the results are marked in the database. In a bio bank, specialists who have thorough knowledge and experience work for testing. The aliquoting techniques are employed in different ways to get the best results. As a biorepository keeps all samples in good quality and security concerns remain good, people come forward to bio banks for help as they require samples.
