ISBER Posting #2

May 22, 2015

The second announcement was, as expected, Brooks and Chart Industries’ introduction of  the new BioStore™ III Cryo — a -190°C (vapor phase) automated cryogenic sample management system. BioStore III Cryo introduces automation to users currently using manual LN2 storage freezers. It incorporates box-level automation, sample inventory, and has built in features to help protect innocents and Tg, plus it maintains all of the benefits of a manual LN2 freezer. No more climbing up steps, lifting out heavy racks and prying cryoboxes out!
