"Ease of use is exceptional. Users can log in remotely to request samples and retrieve when order is ready. Depending on vial size chosen, storage capacity is massive. At 300 uL vial size, we can store upwards of 140,000 samples. The arktic changed our lives. Collections are organized, clearly labelled, compactly stored and easily managed."

— Andrew Martin, NYU Medical Center

"Our high throughput research laboratory utilises two -80°C TTP Labtech Arktic systems. Both systems are used for storing, retrieving and re-arraying hundreds of biological samples each day."

— Lee Bradshaw, MRC Epidemiology

Innovative automated biobanking solutions

arktic provides a flexible, affordable and secure -20°C or -80°C automated storage to meet growing research demand for increasing volumes of biological samples.


Efficiently manage precious samples to maximize productivity and ensure accurate research results.

arktic's user-friendly, vending machine style design allows for efficient management and retrieval of 2D barcoded samples, eliminating the need for inefficient manual searching. The high storage density and compact footprint allows facilities to minimize overheads and assure sample integrity, while the innovative pneumatic technology facilitates seamless onward transport of specimens to optimize workflows.
