CTRNet has developed and supports a biobank database called Advanced Tissue Management system (ATiM). This database system enables entering, storing and managing data about participants (e.g. clinical and demographic data) and their biospecimens (e.g. characterization, storage and shipping information) and the subsequent ability to query this data in support of core functions of any biobank.
ATiM is available for free download for non-commercial use. Basic support is provided to academic users and the opportunity to join the ATiM user group .
Full customization of ATiM is also offered through a service contract model.
