Clinical Trials Support Office’s coordinator team provides supplies to labs in need
The Clinical Trials Support Office’s M-CTSU coordinator team recently went above and beyond to lend a helping hand by supplying the Michigan Clinical Research Unit (MCRU) and Clinical Research Specimen Processing (CRSP) labs with thousands of cryovials. These supplies are on backorder until later in 2022, creating a critical shortage for many research efforts outside of the CTSU’s support.
Fortunately, the CTSU has access to a wealth of these tubes coming out of expired kits from industry research. Industry directions were to throw these supplies away, but the team collaborated with teammates across campus to make sure the supplies were able to be used.
The reuse of these tubes will help ease supply shortages in labs, as well as reduce waste in an effort for a greener world.
