Sample Storage System
MIBI has invested in the set up of a liquid nitrogen based sample storage facility. This system provides secure and controlled storage of samples in liquid nitrogen vapour phase with an automated storage condition monitoring and recording system. The facility currently has the capasity to store over 600 000 samples (in two millimeter cryovials) and a possibility of expanding the capacity to about 1,7 million samples in cryovials, and much more in smaller volume vessels, e.g., microplates.
For most widely used sample collections MIBI has an automated storage system NitroStore. The capacity of NitroStore is 200 000 samples, 100000 in -20C, and -80C each. NitroStore significantly increases productivity by speeding up cherry picking of samples.
