New EXIMIOUS SOP tool for biological samples published

The EXIMIOUS project has released a new Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) tool as part of their toolbox to standardise the collection, storage, and shipment of biological samples for analysing internal exposome markers.

The EXIMIOUS project, which gathers extensive data to study exposome markers, operates across diverse sites such as mines, factories, and hospitals. This complexity necessitates a unified protocol to ensure sample consistency and quality across various centers and partner organisations.

The new SOP tool outlines detailed procedures for sample collection, processing, storage, and shipment, with a strong focus on maintaining sample integrity. Quality assurance was a key focus, with pilot samples being collected and assessed before finalising the protocols.
