Overview
  • Industry-first -80°C LN2 refrigerated automated storage system with inventory control including 21-CFR-11 reporting, BioStore™ IIIv automated sample storage system combines Brooks’ advanced automated sample management technology with the industry-leading performance of Chart® Vario™ LN2 freezers
  • The system offers best-in-class sample security, data management, and inventory control
  • Complete sample protection with innovative design to prevents the transient sample warming events that usually occur during sample retrieval from typical -80°C mechanical storage systems
  • The BioStore™ IIIv System provides maximum biosample collection protection combined with cost-effective -80°C LN2 automated storage
  • The system is a perfect fit for biobank customers with high-value, temperature-sensitive samples
  • The BioStore™ IIIv System protects irreplaceable sample assets with the security and efficiencies of LN2 storage while providing all the benefits of automated storage at -80°C
Key Features
  • Can be set to a desired temperature between -20°C and -150°C*
  • Insulating tower temperature protection for non-targeted boxes
  • Extended hold time compared to mechanical freezers in emergency situations
  • Ergonomically designed for simple user experience and minimized injury risk
  • Superior user interface for easy operation and inventory documentation
  • Simple, accurate and documented inventory management to the vial level
  • Secure username and password access for full traceability
  • Library management is an option, allowing the freezer to be partitioned into libraries with user defined access control
  • LIMS integration and reporting options to enhance existing storage and tracking infrastructure
  • Holds more than 120,000 1.0ml FluidX tubes or 63,000 2.0ml FluidX tubes
  • Use with a variety of labware types including cryoboxes, SBS racks
  • Sample retrieval in less than 60 seconds
  • Automatic retrieval of samples through a touchscreen interface

*Temperature variation is +/- 6°C due to thermocouple variation and thermal loading

Quality
  • Innocent sample protection: insulated tower prevents sample warming of targeted and non-targeted tubes when a source rack is removed from the system
  • Secure: access and defined libraries can be restricted to preauthorized users
  • Disaster protection: extended sample hold-time during unplanned disasters or emergencies is 16 times longer than typical mechanical freezers
  • Qualification services: IQ/OQ/PQ available to meet regulatory requirements
