Making sure you get the most out of your precious samples

Academic research groups and pharmaceutical companies need low cost, compact, automated and secure -80°C biostore facilities to accommodate increasing volumes of biological samples, including DNA, RNA, proteins, antibodies, plasma, serum or other automated biobanking needs.

Effective biobanking is a prerequisite for high quality biological research

The collection, processing, storage, and tracking of biospecimens are vital components allowing researchers to achieve accurate and valuable research results. What if you had access to a low cost, compact storage unit which provided unrivaled storage density, full sample tracking and rapid retrieval?
