Tracking of samples in the diagnostic flow
What is it about?
The life flow of the sample within the laboratory is already managed with operating standards that guarantee, with a certain precision, the tracking of the sample from its receipt in the laboratory to the production of the result (and subsequent disposal of the sample). In this way, the correspondence between the sample taken and the patient is guaranteed within the laboratory. However, this traceability process is not yet ensured in the stages preceding the arrival of the sample in the laboratory.
In this scenario, we are looking for solutions that focus on completing and improving the tracking process of samples before they arrive in the laboratory such as:
1 Automated tracking systems
2. Solution (hardware / software) for the traced transport of biological material
3. Position detection systems (in & out-door)
4. Intelligent packaging systems
The Challenge is aimed at all “Projects”, in particular to those managed by startups, which have already tested the validity of their solution through a Proof of Concept (PoC) and are able to present the results.
Applicable Projects can be proposed by public or private entities and individuals residing in Italy or within the European Union.

An evaluation committee, composed of Roche representatives, will evaluate the project according to the following criteria:
- originality and relevance of the proposal to the areas indicated in the Challenge;
- possibility of realization and development potential of the Project;
- methodology used and results evaluation parameters;
- ease of use / application;
- management of ethical-legal aspects;
- replicability of the Project and possibility of agile expansion in the event of an increase in the number of recipients;
- presentation of the results already obtained and the expected results
