BioSpecimen Repository

Thursday 03/15/2012

The Hutchinson Center’s BioSpecimen Repository provides an alternative for lab liquid nitrogen storage requirements for both small and large scale storage needs. Specimens are stored within a vapor phase liquid nitrogen freezer system which features paper documentation of temperature storage, dual temperature recording at 3 points inside of unit, bulk supply of liquid nitrogen, daily nitrogen level check, annual validation of all components, and 72 hour battery back-up. The system also features a warning gas bypass that prevents unwanted warm gas from entering storage area.
