A line of advanced deep freezers with robotic sample access is now available for biotech and life science laboratories.

The Hamilton Storage Technologies (Franklin, MA, USA) BiOS M and L are two compact high-density systems for the ultralow-temperature storage of sensitive biological samples.

All samples within the BiOS systems are stored in -80 degrees Celsius chest freezer compartments to maintain temperature stability. All internal workflows, including sample picking, are optimized to keep samples at ultralow temperatures at all times. System parts are easily accessible for service and maintenance, while one-dimensional and two-dimensional barcode reading and sample tracking provide complete chain-of-custody documentation—a requirement for forensic laboratories. Multiple backup systems ensure that samples stay at -80 degrees Celsius in the event of power failure.

“By adding smaller configurations of our high-capacity BiOS -80 degree Celsius storage system, more labs have access to state-of-the-art sample storage within steps of their sample preparation and analysis stations,” said Dr. Martin Frey, PhD, head of Hamilton Storage Technologies. “This reduces the likelihood that results may be compromised.”
