In the Hungarian biological laboratories as well as biobanks the used method for the
registration of samples is usual sticky- or barcode labels. In the first case a tipical source
of the fault could be if the assisstant misread or mistype the ID. Although the barcode
technology is a well developed, mainstream technology in the medical biology, use of
this method has got many compromises. First of all, in the case of a succesful
identification barcode label and laser reader needs to be in front of each other. Second
issue is when we want to take a sample out of the freezer and the barcode can not be
read due to the ice layer appeared on the label.
In my thesis, I dealed with a kind of element of an intelligent sample management,
which tries to break the limits of the barcode technology mentioned above. In this
theoretical system, the identification of samples have been done with RFID TAGs
placed on a flexible sticky carrier, which are placed to the tubes of the samples.
In my thesis, I indroduce the historical backgrounds, theoretical basics of the RFID
technology. I examined the effectiveness of modern transponders (TAGs). Due to my
measurements I succeeded to find a type of them which could be appropriate for
medical biology uses, too. I have done some measurements with a test enviroment
based on development proposals. With some references, I planned and built an RFID
reader what could be a proper base of the new registration system.
