REMP’s Repository for Biological Samples Passed Final Site Acceptance Test at Pfizer
News Jun 01, 2006
The REMP Bio-Sample Store is the automated storage and retrieval system of its size to hold samples at –80°C in combination with the REMP Tube Technology™.
This system is based on reliable sample storage concepts and is fully compatible with all other REMP products and consumables.
The REMP Bio-Sample Store can be used for a wide range of research applications; such as, genomics, proteomics, tissue banking, glycerol stocks and long-term storage of enzymes and other stock solutions.
Additionally, there is the option to store samples at both –80°C and –20°C, within the same storage system, which allows for optimal storage conditions of temperature sensitive molecules such as DNA or antibodies.
This storage system for biological materials was developed jointly with Pfizer Global Research and Development, the R&D arm of Pfizer, Inc. and is able to store millions of samples, concurrently, at –80°C and –20°C under controlled dry air conditions to prevent frost build up.
