XTELL's previous work involved the development of the Ohio University Diabetes/Endocrine Diseases Biorepository.

The purpose of the Ohio University Biorepository is to provide a source of human serum, plasma, RNA, & DNA samples linked to a clinical database to enhance translational research in diabetes and endocrine diseases.

How Does the Ohio University Biorepository Work?

  • After obtaining informed consent, blood samples are collected, labeled, and transferred to the Biorepository
  • At the Biorepository, samples are processed, separated into fractions, bar-coded, and then gradually frozen to -80 degrees Celsius
  • The biorepository has a sophisticated inventory management program to track all specimens
  • Finally, the blood samples are linked to the patient medical record system, Praxis®.

Data Management

  • Inventory of all blood samples
  • Thermal bar-coding/encryption
  • Dynamic database linking between the biorepository database and patient medical records database

Network and Security

  • Virtual Private Network between the Edison Biotechnology Institute and University Medical Associates
  • The transfer of this clinical information will be confidential and no personal identifiers will be released from the OU Database/Biorepository to any investigator

More information on the Ohio University Biorepository can be found here.
