Title

(FR) SYSTÈME INVIOLABLE DE POINT D'ENVELOPPE, D'INVENTAIRE ET DE COMPTABILITÉ, ET PROCÉDÉ ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
The system in at least one embodiment provides a tamper evident specimen sample lock that in a further embodiment includes an embedded storage medium. They system and method in at least one embodiment allows for efficiently and securely creating, maintaining, identifying, tracking, and controlling inventories (either prospective or retrospective) of biological and chemical sample containers and their contents, while eliminating potential loss and degradation associated with handling the samples. The system in at least one embodiment provides a sample container tray or cryogenic box having one or more integrated RFID readers within an associated smart lid that sense RFIDs associated with the individual samples thereby eliminating the need to remove, visually inspect, and/or handle the samples.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un système qui, dans au moins un mode de réalisation, fournit un dispositif de verrouillage d'échantillon de spécimen inviolable qui, dans un autre mode de réalisation, comprend un support de stockage incorporé. Dans au moins un mode de réalisation, ces système et procédé permettent la création, le maintien, l'identification, le suivi et le contrôle de manière efficace et sécurisée d'inventaires (soit futurs, soit rétrospectifs) de contenants d'échantillons biologiques et chimiques et de leurs contenus, tout en éliminant la perte et la dégradation potentielles associées à la manipulation des échantillons. Dans au moins un mode de réalisation, le système comprend un plateau ou une boîte cryogénique pour contenant d'échantillon ayant un ou plusieurs lecteurs d'identification par radiofréquence (RFID) intégrés dans un couvercle intelligent associé qui détecte des identifications par radiofréquence (RFID) associées aux échantillons individuels, permettant ainsi d'éliminer le besoin d'enlever, d'inspecter visuellement et/ou de manipuler les échantillons.
