Candel Therapeutics is developing oncolytic viral immunotherapies that help the immune system fight cancer. They came to LabKey seeking a system for managing biomarker samples from clinical trials, each with 100-3,000 aliquots. Candel was outgrowing their spreadsheet-based approach to sample tracking which was becoming increasingly inefficient and prone to errors. They also had a need for an audit trail to ensure consistency between studies.
Sample Manager provided:
- Built-in aliquot feature
- Complete tracking of sample relationships, sources and types
- Easy bulk upload of samples and related data
- Quick setup and implementation
