New RFID Kit ideal for labs of any size specializing in the collection and management of frozen samples.

RURO, Inc., a leading developer of innovative research productivity tools, is pleased to offer the FreezerPro ColdTrack RFID Kit, a fully integrated RFID solution for labs of any size specializing in the collection and management of frozen samples.

The FreezerPro® ColdTrack RFID Kit is designed to electronically track large collections of samples kept at ultra-low temperatures in biobanks and biorepositories. The kit consists of RURO’s FreezerPro software, RFID-tagged ColdTrack Vials and a BoxMapper – a USB powered scanner that provides rapid mapping of samples to the rows and columns in a freezer box.

The BoxMapper can map the entire contents of a standard size freezer box in less than a second and is unaffected by frost and ice, except in cases of extreme ice accumulation. Since scanning is quick, integrity is maintained because sample heating is kept to a minimum.

Kit components include:

• FreezerPro® Standard or Enterprise
• 1000 Wheaton 2mL vials with embedded RFID tags
• 10 Wheaton cryo-boxes with a choice of 9×9 or 10×10 configuration
• 1 BoxMapper – USB powered RFID reader
• RURO Support Services

Additional options include:

• Single-vial RFID reader
• Wi-Fi handheld RFID reader

According to Vlad Lebedev, Systems Architect with RURO, “The FreezerPro ColdTrack RFID Kit is an easy to use, accessible way to start tracking cryo-vials with RFID technology.”
