Proper sample storage and transportation ensure the integrity, stability, and reliability of samples and specimens. Correctly stored samples are essential to achieving accurate analysis and patient diagnosis, in addition to enabling future reference.
Secure storage methods prevent contamination or alteration of samples. Contaminated or degraded samples can lead to inaccurate results or potential loss of samples. Specimen storage and transportation need to be secure and leak-proof for the preservation of the sample quality and the safe transportation of liquids.
Research that requires repetitive testing requires the sample to be replicable for validation and verification. Well-preserved samples provide a basis for other researchers to reproduce processes accurately, leading to reliable and credible results. Buffered Formalin provides excellent fixation and long-term preservation of tissue biopsies.
