Sampled has announced the expansion of its Sampled SMART Labs facility into a 140,000 square foot laboratory and biorepository in Piscataway, NJ. The biorepository will be one of the largest of its kind in the world, and construction is expected to be completed by early 2023.
The multi-million-dollar investment will increase Sampled’s worldwide biorepository capabilities and enable it to store, manage, analyze, research and transport up to 20 million bio-samples. The expansion will also expand Sampled’s laboratory capabilities, enabling clients to conduct research or launch new health products faster and easier. Clients will have access to the full suite of Sampled SMART Labs services from genomics services to sample collection kitting, including access to technologies from collaborators such as PacBio, Illumina, Thermo Fisher Scientific, PerkinElmer and Standard BioTools.
The new facility is expected to house more than 800 freezers and 230 liquid nitrogen tanks with a secure, access-controlled environment, wireless monitoring and full generator and LN2 backup. Sampled SMART Labs have CAP (College of American Pathologists) and CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) certification and adhere to ISBER (International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories) best practices.
Infinity BiologiX, Roylance Stability Storage Limited and Roylance Scientific Limited are doing business as Sampled.
