Industry-first -80°C LN2 refrigerated automated storage system with inventory control including 21-CFR-11 reporting, the BioStore -80°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System combines Azenta Life Sciences advanced automated sample management technology with industry-leading LN2 freezers.

The system offers best-in-class sample security, data management, and inventory control. Complete sample protection with innovative design to prevents the transient sample warming events that usually occur during sample retrieval from typical -80°C mechanical storage systems. The BioStore -80°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System provides maximum biosample collection protection combined with cost-effective -80°C LN2 automated storage. The system is a perfect fit for biobank customers with high-value, temperature-sensitive samples.

The BioStore -80°C LN2-Based Automated Storage System protects irreplaceable sample assets with the security and efficiencies of LN2 storage while providing all the benefits of automated storage at -80°C.

Key Features
  • Properties
    • Can be set to a desired temperature between -20°C and -150°C*
    • Insulating tower temperature protection for non-targeted boxes
    • Extended hold time compared to mechanical freezers in emergency situations
    • Ergonomically designed for simple user experience and minimized injury risk
    • Superior user interface for easy operation and inventory documentation
    • Simple, accurate and documented inventory management to the vial level
    • Secure username and password access for full traceability
    • Library management is an option, allowing the freezer to be partitioned into libraries with user defined access control
    • LIMS integration and reporting options to enhance existing storage and tracking infrastructure
    • Holds more than 120,000 1.0ml tubes or 63,000 2.0ml tubes
    • Use with a variety of labware types including cryoboxes, SBS racks
    • Sample retrieval in less than 60 seconds
    • Automatic retrieval of samples through a touchscreen interface

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

  • Quality
    • Innocent sample protection: insulated tower prevents sample warming of targeted and non-targeted tubes when a source rack is removed from the system
    • Secure: access and defined libraries can be restricted to preauthorized users
    • Disaster protection: extended sample hold-time during unplanned disasters or emergencies is 16 times longer than typical mechanical freezers
    • Qualification services: IQ/OQ/PQ available to meet regulatory requirements
