Experimental irreproducibility costs life sciences companies $28.2 billion in R&D annual expenditure. This is manifested in the form of extra time to redo studies and wasted materials such as rare samples and/or costly reagents. The end result is project delays that could ultimately impede your organization from meeting its annual goals.
Determining the root causes of irreproducibility can be a cumbersome process. One possible root cause that is often overlooked is improper material storage and process conditions due to open doors for storage cabinets, cold storage units, or incubators. The reason is that it’s often difficult to catch, and thus, even harder to prove such circumstances. Many delicate reagents or samples are affected by small variations in temperature, humidity, and light, yet your team may not be aware that slightly ajar doors on cabinets, freezes, refrigerators, and incubators could be compromising their samples.
The Elemental Machines dashboard provides detailed information about open door events for all assets monitored by Elements. This insight provides teams with traceable data to identify potential root causes of experimental irreproducibility.
