BioStore™ -190°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System

The BioStore -190°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System provides the best in class automated storage solution for cellular products and other materials requiring storage temperatures below glass transition (Tg)

  • Highest sample protection
  • Comprehensive inventory management system
  • Superior user experience
  • LIMS connectivity

The BioStore -190°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System provides researchers and biobank managers with a best-in-class storage solution for cellular products and biosamples. The system combines Chart MVE’s proven, high-efficiency LN2 stainless steel freezer with the Azenta Life Sciences technology and software to ensure the highest sample integrity.

The BioStore -190°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System offers the greatest sample protection and comprehensive inventory management and control with a superior user experience at an affordable price. Targeted and non-targeted samples are protected from warming above Tg (glass transition) throughout sample retrieval. Quality is assured by viewing user access, sample inventory, history, and audit-trail reports. Emergency situation protection provides greater than 20 days of temperature stability in the case of energy or LN2 loss.

    *Temperature variation is +/- 6°C due to thermocouple variation and thermal loading

  • Sample Integrity, Security & Tracking
    • Consistent -190°C temperatures achieved for from top to bottom using LN2 vapor
    • A sample integrity calculator protects samples from excessive warming by predicting their temperatures based on experimental evidence
    • Integrity is further enhanced by protecting innocent samples during storage and retrieval transient exposures
    • Racks are quickly pulled into an insulated sleeve, significantly slowing transient warming
    • 20-day safety hold time below -135°C (Tg) with full manual access if power or LN2 are disrupted
    • Comprehensive inventory management with vial-level ID, audit trail, reports, and LIMS connectivity
  • Software
    • Controller software and touchscreen enable efficient order management and execution
    • Its easy-to-use graphical interface permits tube-level inventory management plus sample storage, retrieval, and auditing
    • The software monitors storage environment data and has comprehensive error handling
    • LIMS connectivity is available for real-time sample management
    • Full 21-CFR-11 reporting capability is available
    • Administrator-defined libraries and access control can optimize the system as a shared resource
