Rapid Data Entry

User friendly and feature rich interface enables you to collect specimens in high-throughput bio-banks. Bio-repositories operate in diverse ways that makes designing a single data management system challenging. To account for all scenarios, bio-specimen data entry workflows in OpenSpecimen are generalized so OpenSpecimen adopters potentially need to modify bio-repository processes to create the most efficient environment. Traditionally, spreadsheets were the most common data management tool available to and utilized by bio-repositories. OpenSpecimen is a modern application accessible via a web browser and while easily more scalable, secure and controlled than a spreadsheet. Bio-repository staff can process specimens in a bulk manner (e.g. add specimen events, transfer, distribute), which can significantly decrease time taken for data entry, while the search function of OpenSpecimen offers research investigators a way to easily create or reuse existing queries.
